We had already done the typical tour of the city center so we decided to do this tour to spend the afternoon on Saturday. Our guide, Manel, very nice, also explained many stories / legends / curiosities of places and streets of our city that we pass through weekly and we do not pay the attention they deserve due to ignorance. Very interesting. Thanks Manel!

On this night tour of Barcelona you'll discover the stories and legends which the Catalan city hides in its oldest streets. Ready to uncover some mysteries?

Itinerary

Our tour of the mysteries and legends of Barcelona begins on the junction of streets Fontanella and Estruc. On the latter, lived a special wizard and astrologer, as well as being known as the street where the "escurçonera" was sold: a stone which 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 seamlessly head over to the Archdeacon's House - the outside of which bears a strange stone tortoise. This highly symbolic figure providing 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.
