Your experience

  • Admire Barcelona from the roof of Barcelona Cathedral in the heart of the city
  • Learn about the history of Barcelona beyond Gaudi - this old city has so many incredible stories to tell

Do you want to learn more about the fascinating Barcelona than the well-known story of the Sagrada Família and Gaudí?

Your tour starts at a central point where you meet your guide and go straight to the centre of the old town. The ancient Romans founded the city 2000 years ago. You will be surprised how many of the original structures still exist

Passing huge fragments of the old Roman wall you enter the cathedral of Barcelona. Unlike Gaudi's unique Sagrada Familia, this is a much more classical cathedral - but its beautiful Gothic façade hides a secret: it is not as old as it seems. After you have explored the interior, it is time for a little surprise: tickets for the roof of the cathedral, from where you can enjoy one of the best panoramas in all of Barcelona.

Back at street level, your guide will take you into the narrow side streets of the city. Although this is one of the liveliest and most historic parts of the city, many visitors do not know what to look out for when exploring or which places are most important. We have carefully worked out an itinerary that shows the best of this small area by putting together a rich selection of stories from over 2000 years of history, from the bubonic plague to the last public execution, which did not take place until 1975.

Along the way you will follow in the footsteps of a martyr, explore the old Jewish ghetto, experience some architectural history, with stops at Carrer Bisbe Bridge and a square that was once the favourite of Antoni Gaudí, and even see where Barcelona's official executioner lived

Every street, square and landmark on this tour is closely linked to Barcelona's history. From its beginnings as a small outpost of the ancient Roman Empire, through its consolidation as a regional capital, to its heyday at the beginning of the 20th century, which made it the beautiful, cosmopolitan city it is today. As you are travelling with a local guide, you will also get an insight into modern politics, including Catalonia's striving for independence

You will visit the famous market of La Boquería, where you will explore the stalls filled with meat, cheese and other products, while your guide explains how Catalonia became one of the richest agricultural regions of the Iberian Peninsula.

The tour ends in a local Jamón shop where you will enjoy a guided tasting and learn the secrets of one of Spain's most sought-after products: Jamón Iberico. You will also learn about the centuries-old methods used to breed the pigs and smoke the meat for this unique and highly appreciated form of delicatessen

Before the tour is over, you will have enough time to ask the guide what else you should see, where to eat well on any budget, how to get around the city and you will even learn a few useful words in Catalan.

For travellers visiting Barcelona for the first time, this tour - with its passionate local guide and a small group of 15 people or less - is the perfect way to familiarise yourself with the city and develop the kind of local knowledge that will prepare you for the rest of your stay. There is no easier or more pleasant way to start your holiday in Barcelona.
