Explore the historic center of Barcelona accompanied by an expert English-speaking guide on a 2.5-hour free walking tour and delve into the rich history and culture of the second largest city in Spain.


Meet your guide in Plaça de L'Àngel, situated in the center of the Gothic Quarter of Barcelona, and embark on a free tour of the “Ciudad Condal”.

Strolling through the Barrio Gótico, the city’s Old Town, you will admire the Barcelona Cathedral, built between the thirteenth and fifteenth century. Then, head to the impressive Mirador del Rei Martí, known in English as King Martin’s Watchtower. This attraction is situated in the Plaça del Rei, a striking Medieval square where Ferdinand II of Aragon was plotted against. Next, you will explore Plaça Sant Jaume, home to the Town Hall and the Palau de la Generalitat.

As you walk along, your local guide will reveal the past, secrets and legends of Barcelona, from Hercules, the legendary founder of the city, to when the Romans settled in the area and called it Barcino, to its most famous artists including Antoni Gaudí and Picasso.

Once you have discovered the Gothic Quarter, follow your knowledgeable guide to El Born District, where you will marvel at the Basilica de Santa María del Mar and learn about its fascinating past.

During this walking tour, you will also wonder at the Roman Necropolis, located just a short walk away from  Las Ramblas, and discover countless other landmarks, like the Basilica Santa María del Mar, Port Vell waterfront harbor and the Llotja.

You name the price

At the end of the free tour we invite you to pay your guide based on your level of satisfaction, since they are exclusively paid with the visitors’ gratuities.
