Its beguiling and bewildering and very easy to get lost. But this 2.5-hour guided walking tour through the neighborhood is certain to set even the most directionally challenged traveler straight. Learn the history of the neighborhood, see the important sites and finish off with some traditional pintxos, or small snacks, at a cool restaurant in El Born, a neighborhood crammed with wine bars and boutiques.

Know More about this tour

The Gothic Quarter dates back to the Middle Ages, when Gothic architecture was all the rage (hence the name of the neighborhood). Its filled with streets so tiny that most of it is closed off to traffic.

Meet your guide at Plaa Nova to start the walking tour and immediately cross through the citys ancient city gate of Barcino. Your guide will set the scene, providing historical detail to give a sense of what life was like in medieval Barcelona. Stroll through the old Jewish Quarter, home to most of the citys Jewish denizens until they were banished from Spain by Queen Isabella at the end of the 15th century. Then continue on to Plaa del Rei , Plaa de lngel, Argenteria Street and Santa Mara del Mar Church. See the Santa Caterina Market, a great market that is often overlooked because of the popularity of the citys main market, Boqueria.

For the final part of the tour, pop into a restaurant in El Born to sample some pintxos, bite-size snacks that are popular in the Basque Country in northeast Spain (one pintxo included in price). Choose a drink, either a soft drink, a beer or a glass of Txakoli, a slightly effervescent white wine that also hails from the Basque Country.

Sit back and raise a glass to medieval Barcelona and the new knowledge you have of the city. The tour concludes at Santa Mara del Mar Church, leaving you free to continue to explore this remarkable area on your own.
