Stories of prostitution and sex spectacles, murders and more... discover the sordid and depraved side of Barcelona with this guided tour.

Itinerary

By day maybe you would see her begging, dressed in rags. But by night she graced luxurious galas in the Liceu and other exclusive spots in Barcelona. This was the double life of Enriqueta Martí, otherwise known as the Vampire of Raval. Who was this person in reality, accused of the prostitution and murder of various children in the Catalan capital? We'll begin by discovering the end of this story, at the Jaume I metro station, the start point of our tour of Barcelona's more depraved side...

As we explore El Raval, we'll tell stories of the vampire, who died in 1913 but is still remembered in books and television.

We'll also discover the history of Barcelona's brothels, a story long intertwined with that of Barcelona itself. We'll pass by the mythical Sala Bagdad, which hosts one of the most famous erotic shows in the city, revealing some of the sauciest anecdotes to have come out of the establishment. If these walls could talk...

Around the corner from this symbol of hedonistic, libertine, Barcelona stands one of the best conserved Roman religious monuments in the city: the Sant Pau del Camp monastery. You'd think that monks and sex were incompatible... or are they?
