Immerse with us into the captivating history of the city while strolling through the maze of little streets in El Born & Gothic Quarter. Enjoy a drink in a magical square where mostly locals go.

Learn about important Catalan legends. What’s the significance of the dragon? Why was a bat decisive in a battle? What’s the legend behind the Catalan flag?

Trendy and hip

The 2 most trendy neighborhoods in Barcelona. Complete with shopping therapy and most of those magnificent buildings and landmarks. Busy narrow streets full of life and the most amazing restaurants and bars. Useful tips from a friendly guide.

Nice walk of Old Town

Perfect tour if you want to spend a few hours in the oldest neighborhoods of a fine city. El Born is very popular and full of workshops and artisans shops, no wonder the Cultural center is located here. The market place is another vibrant place to be. Barri Gotic is a tour by itself, everything you would expect from a medieval town. Ornate buildings, narrow streets, bars, restaurants, beautiful squares and of cource the Cathedral. Like i said, a tour to remember.
