Why a Gothic Quarter walking tour in Barcelona?

Some of Barcelona’s oldest and most historically important sites are within walking distance of each other. The oldest sections of the city, the Gothic quarter and the Medieval Born neighbourhood, are beautiful narrow streets; they are also notoriously difficult to navigate. These winding alleys have swallowed up many a tourist that doesn’t know where to look, with blink-and-you-could-miss-it details and fabulous surprises around every corner.

Instead of wasting time with maps and translations, let our professional, experienced guide do the hard work.
