Explore historic Barcelona in a 3-hour small group guided walking tour of the Old Town and Gothic Quarter!

Your guide will take you around Roman Barcelona, a part of the city dating back 2,000 years. Walking along the Gothic Quater, you will travel back in time to the Roman Empire, the Middle Ages, all the way through to the present day. Enjoy the unique architecture and monumental buildings through thousands of years of Barcelona’s history.

Imagine as we recreate the Roman Forum in modern-day Plaça de Sant Jaume, which even now remains the seat of political power in Catalonia. This is also the main venue for the annual celebration of Patron Saint’s Day with a popular local spectacle called Castellers (Human Towers).

Walk along one of the world's best preserved Roman walls and imagine the therapeutic spas once present at the Roman Baths of Pati Llimona.


Take in the Plaça del Rei, home to the Palace of the Viceroy and the beautiful Palau Reial Major. It was on the stairs of this palace that the explorer Christopher Columbus was greeted upon return from his first voyage to the Americas.


You can feel the Christian spirituality most evoked by two of the city’s most famous churches, the Barcelona Cathedral and Santa Maria del Mar, which is the ultimate expression of pure Catalan Gothic style.
