What you'll do

Barcelona's Gothic Quarter is at its most beautiful and authentic by sunset and by night; there are less tourist crowds and it is incredibly atmospheric, it really is like stepping into a time machine and going backwards to the middle ages! We will see a legendary fountain, explore an ancient Roman cemetery and pass under the Roman city walls. We'll visit King's Square, sight of the infamous Spanish inquisition. We will wander the romantic narrow streets of the Jewish Quarter and follow a trail of destruction from the Spanish Civil War. We will visit Royal Square, the city's most beautiful plaza. We'll discover saints and martyrs, kings and queens, medieval gargoyles. As well as history we will discover legends about knights and princesses and dragons. The ancient connects to the modern so you'll understand the current political situation in Catalunya. By the end of this tour you will fully understand how the city has developed over 2,000 years into the global phenomenon it is today. Along the way we will stop to get a delicious hot chocolate in a traditional and local churros café (winter season) or for an irresistible ice cream (summer season)! Want to touch upon wanderlust, the magical cocktail of beauty, romance, exploration and adventure that travel is all about? This is the tour you've been waiting fo
