Walking Through History

Your adventure kicks off in Pla de la Seu, a beautiful historic square. Here, you'll meet a friendly local guide ready to show you the way. First stop, Barcelona's Cathedral, a magnificent masterpiece. Gaze at its Gothic facade, intricately detailed, and listen to stories of its creation.

As you move on, step into the Gothic Quarter, where Roman soldiers and medieval traders once roamed. Discover iconic landmarks like Plaça del Rei, where Columbus was greeted after his American journey. Pause at Plaça Sant Felip Neri, a charming square with a baroque church and a history rooted in the Spanish Civil War.

Cathedral of the Sea

Next, it's off to the El Born district, a vibrant blend of old-world charm and modern flair. Meander through its lively streets and be sure not to miss the breathtaking Santa Maria del Mar, a 14th-century gem often called the 'Cathedral of the Sea.' Did you know that the rose window on the façade is octagonal, a unique feature in Gothic architecture, and it filters a kaleidoscope of colors into the interior? Discover fascinating anecdotes and captivating stories along the way. Your local guides will weave history into engaging narratives for an immersive experience.
