Know More about this tour

The Gothic Quarter is situated between El Born and El Raval, the neighborhood is home to the Barcelona CathedralPlaa Sant JaumePlaa Reial, and the city's most intact stretch of Roman wall. Its winding streets make it an easy and pleasant place to get lost for an afternoon, but seeing it with a guide will unlock the area's historic and cultural significance
This tour combines history, culture and fun. Your expert guide will accompany you on an exploration of the secrets of this medieval area, passing along narrow streets filled with the sounds of everyday city life
Expanding greatly in the Middle Ages, Barcelona incorporate the hip architecture style of the time - Gothic - hence the name of this quarter.  Think peaked archesgargoyles, big round stained glass windows and buttresses, and you have a visual of what to expect from this charming area! 
In the center of the labyrinth that denotes this area, is the very well preserved Roman wall (as well as some hidden columns from the Forum).  As Barcelona expanded in the Middle Ages, citizens used every nook and cranny; leaving us with a somewhat jumbled web of pedestrian streets! One of Europe's largest medieval Jewish quarters is not to be overlooked either and we will dive into this newly revived area sharing with you the history that shaped Barcelona and Europe's history.  Your guide will take you inside the Antique Synagogue. You'll go behind the scenes to see Roman ruins dating back 2,000 years, see a royal palace, hear the stories of the king and queen who funded his explorations, see old headstones from the Jewish cemetery that were used to construct a royal palace, hear the history behind a secret door and much more on this exciting tour through a live pop up history book
