On this night tour of Barcelona, you'll discover the stories and legends that the Catalan city hides in its oldest streets. Ready to uncover some mysteries?
Barcelona Mysteries and Legends Tour
Our tour of the mysteries and legends of Barcelona begins at the junction of Fontanella and Estruc streets. On the latter, lived a special wizard and astrologer, as well as being known as the street where the "escurçonera" was sold: a stone that supposedly cured various illnesses. Who was the wizard of Estruc? What exactly was the 'miracle stone' made of? We'll reveal the answers to these riddles on our tour of this spooky area of Barcelona, just around the corner from Plaza de Cataluña.
Our night tour then continues, making its way into the Gothic quarter, where we'll learn of the story of the Santa Eulalia underground river, whose origins stretch back to Roman Barcelona. Then we'll head over to the Archdeacon's House, the outside of which bears a strange stone tortoise. This highly symbolic figure provides the inspiration for another fascinating legend...
Next to the Archdeacon's House is the Barcelona Cathedral, where we'll pay special attention to its gargoyles, each one having an incredible history behind it, which of course we'll reveal on our tour. Then with our heads bursting with mysteries and ghosts around every corner, we'll end the tour back where it began.
