Overview
Explore several thousand years of Barcelona history in a single day during this 2-hour guided Gothic Quarter walking tour. Travel back in time through the Roman and medieval eras to the present day as you discover this atmospheric neighborhood’s winding streets and many layers of history. Stop by the Plaça de Sant Jaume, now the seat of the Catalan government, and walk along side one of the world’s best-preserved Roman walls. Stops at the medieval Plaça del Rei, Barcelona Cathedral, La Boquería market, and Las Ramblas are also included.
What to Expect
Meet your guide in the center of Barcelona in the morning, and get ready for your 2-hour walking tour of the Old Town and Gothic Quarter areas.

Follow your guide along the ancient streets, and discover the origins of Roman Barcelona, dating back more than 2,000 years. Imagine the Roman Forum in the current Plaça de Sant Jaume, which, even today, remains the political power of Catalonia. Walk along one of the world's best-preserved Roman walls, and imagine how even at that time thalasso-therapy baths were taken at the Roman Baths of Pati Llimona in the eastern part of the wall.

Admire the architecture and monumental buildings of the Gothic Quarter, including the 14th-century Plaça del Rei. Learn about the city's Christian side at the Barcelona Cathedral and Santa Maria del Mar, an outstanding example of Catalan Gothic architecture. Soak up the energy of the surrounding neighborhood, filled with bars, restaurants, and small boutiques.

Walk along the lively Ramblas, and see street performers before continuing on to the famed Boqueria market for a glimpse at the gastronomic traditions of the Catalan people.

Conclude your tour back at the original departure point, two hours after you set out.

Please note: A minimum of two people per booking is required.

Interesting Tour

While planning our trip to Barcelona I noticed that there seemed to be a lot of activity in and around the Gothic Quarter so this was the perfect way to become familiar with the area. The walk was very interesting and informative.

Our guide was Octavio for the walking district tour, and we thought he was great with slight adjustments. Meeting point was confusing, he didn't have a sign or any indication that he was our guide. We just stood there waiting until we were finally approached....More
