Discover the Old Town of Barcelona and all its secrets
Let's travel back in time to explore how everything started for Barcelona. To understand where we are now we need to know where we come from. Stroll with me through more than 2000 years of history and discover the streets, squares and hidden corners of the Gothic and Born Quarters.
We will look at the Romans remains, you will hear about legends and myths of Medieval Ages and I will make you observe how the stones can reveal many secrets.
Reality always exceeds fiction, we only have to study our own history to realize about it. I will share with you stories from our past, anecdotes and crazy traditions while we admire the architectural jewels from medieval times which are living proof of an splendorous time for the city.
Feel like an insider walking with me around the vibrant maze that is the Old Town of Barcelona.

This is mainly a walking tour, Old City Barcelona was not built to be driven by cars or mini vans, the streets and alleys are very narrow. Most of the streets we will explore are just for pedestrians. All the streets are paved and we can avoid steps by using ramps.
If you wish any transportation please contact me and I will arrange it with an extra cost.
