Know More about this tour

El Born was the center of life in medieval Barcelona. It was the economic and commercial heart of the city, and later one of the districts most significantly affected by war in the late 17th and early 18th centuries. On this guided tour youll learn about knightly adventures and hear medieval legends and stories about this centuries-old quarter. Enter the walls of El Born and discover its narrow and ancient streets. See where the Rec Comtal, an irrigation canal, was built in the 10th century, where the most privileged inhabitants lived, and where the most important inner buildings stood.

Next, youll head to the Mercat Princesa, an incredible gastronomic space located in a renovated building from the 14th century. Admire its articulated stone walls and arches and medieval architectural detail. At the periphery of the space around a courtyard covered with a glass dome, youll find 16 sites where you can taste culinary specialties of all kinds.
