WALKING TOUR BARCELONA
Walking tour Barcelona by Dmc Solutions Barcelona.
The walking tour Barcelona takes you through the old town – a maze that mixes old legends, must see landmarks and vibrant traditions! Learn the story behind the story and discover the real and authentic Barcelona. The tour starts at Las Ramblas (or at any point of your choice), known as Barcelona’s most famous boulevard. We meet right in front of the Liceu Opera House – destroyed three times and still standing today.
We “watch the show” of visitors on the Ramblas, and soon we step into Barri Gòtic. A medieval maze populated with narrow alleys, concealed churches, shaded plazas and centuries-old legends. Plaça Sant Jaume square, Barcelona’s dancing egg and our cathedral: this tour shows Barcelona’s hidden side. As you touch the Roman walls and temple, you experience our city’s 2,000 year history. Stories abound, the bombing in Sant Felip Neri’s Square, and the 13 geese of our cathedral.
To conclude this tour filled with legends and stories, we walk all the way to the majestic steps of Plaça del Rei – where the king of Spain welcomed Christopher Colombus back from his world-transforming expedition.
Must see landmarks and vibrant traditions!
Our walking tours are run by official guides and work best in smaller groups. Having said that, there is no maximum as the tour can be run by many guides at the same time.
There is an option do run the walking tour Barcelona in any of the neighbourhoods. Artistic and bohemic Gracia, Borne (home to some of the most interesting bars, restaurants and boutiques) or Barceloneta and its old fishermen´s quarter. We also offer tailor made walking tours with stops for tapas and shopping. Why not join a tour run by a homeless guide showing her Barcelona!
