Full description
Join your guide on this 3.5-hour tour to see some historically significant sites of Barcelona in an authentic manner: see the places frequented by people who live in the neighborhood, unknown to the general public. Barcelona’s narrow and labyrinthine streets make the ideal scenario to enjoy the city center without hurry, reveling in the remains that are preserved from the glorious past of the city. Your route begins at “Carmela”, the sculpture by Jaume Plensa next to the Palau de la Música and runs almost 3 kilometers through Barri de Sant Pere, the Ribera, and the Gothic Quarter. Along the way, you’ll see sites like the Convent de Sant Agusti, Capella d’en Marcus, Santa Maria del Mar, Temple Roma, House of the Ardiaca, and more.   In addition to a pleasant gastronomic surprise during the tour, you’ll also have the opportunity to taste a snack in a very special place, connected with the art, quietness, and charm of Gothic architecture. The tour ends in the most touristic area of the city, where you can visit on your own the more popular monuments of the city.
