Embark on a quest to discover Barcelona’s historic Gothic Quarter and scout for your soulmate on this exploration game with a romantic twist.

Explore at your own pace: pause the game and resume anytime from any location where you paused it. As you solve challenges, directions on your phone will guide you to the next location. Walk to Barcelona’s famous wonders: the Palau de la Generalitat de Catalunya, Bishop’s Bridge, The Kiss of Freedom, the Cathedral of Barcelona, and more. Discover the Gothic Quarter through the historic center, which stretches from the Mediterranean seafront to Ronda de Sant Pere. Choose to play on your own, in a large group, or in several smaller groups to compete against each other and race to the final stop of the game. Enjoy an experience that’s the perfect mix between a tour, outdoor escape game, and treasure hunt. The entire game will take around 1.5 to 2 hours to complete. You will finish at Plaça Reial.

I had the absolute best time on my tour today! Highlight of my trip. Our tour guide who unfortunately I can’t remember how to spell his name but it began with M! Was so lovely and knowledgeable and was happy to answer any questions from the group. I 100% would recommend this tour to anyone it was great and I got some amazing pictures!

Everything was great, but unfortunately our helicopter flight could not take place because the king was in Barcelona and this was forbidden. But the organizers couldn't do anything about that.

On land, in the air, on water. So I was able to get an idea of Barcelona from different perspectives in a short time. It's a great option - not cheap, but very rewarding - and recommended.

Everything was perfect apart from the weather (Sea mist) stopped the helicopter flight.

The guide is perfect, and the activity exceptional, very good day spent
