Enchanting Old Town by Night Tour

Barcelona, Spain

Experience hosted by Alessio

  1. 2.5 hours
  2. Hosted in English and Spanish

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,
wander the romantic narrow streets of the Jewish Quarter and follow a trail of destruction from
the Spanish Civil War. 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 for!
