Cosa farete

We will explore the most beautiful neighborhood of Barcelona's old town, 'El Born'. Forget Game of Thrones, this is the real deal! This is an authentic, local neighbourhood which has escaped some of the massive tourist crowds of the city's other Gothic quarter. We will walk through the windy medieval cobbled streets, stopping in beautiful plazas lined with cafés. We will pass one of the best coffee houses in Barcelona, where you can have time to grab a latte or iced coffee to go. We will visit some of Barcelona's most iconic and beautiful buildings, including the phenomenal Music Palace and the gothic church Santa Maria del Mar. We will learn about the city's trials and tribulations: Spanish Inquisition, the Spanish Civil War, the 'Tragic Week', the Siege of Barcelona. We will talk about rebellion, torture, repression, cultural renaissance, royal families. We'll visit a local market where you can purchase cheap and tasty local tapas like 'la bomba' and stuffed croquettes. We will walk through Barcelona's designer's quarter, perfect for taking pretty photos. Finally the tour finishes inside a beautiful public park, the happiest place in Barcelona, where you can unwind on the grass with an ice-cream or beer! By the end you'll have some beautiful photos, some tasty food, and a special insight into what makes Barcelona one of the most iconic and inspiring cities on the planet

Dope tour. Paolo was funny, knowledgeable, and tells great stories about Barcelona. Also hooked us up with great food stops during the tour, and a list of recommendations afterwards! Worth every penny.

This was a great tour of the Old Town, and the areas no one typically visits. Had a great time, made some new friends and ate some good food.

Paulo knows his history! And he shares it in a very entertaining way. All the spots he took our group were off the beaten path, which made me feel like I was a local. Most of his suggestions for places to eat, hang out, and learn about the city were not highlighted on the web or city guides you tend to look for. I strongly recommend this tour if you really want to learn about the city from a less travelled perspective. I also took the evening tour later that evening and it showed another side of the city with the same insight and storytelling as the earlier tour. Overall, both tours were great experiences!

This experience was a wonderful way to explore Barcelona as people new to the city. Paulo was very friendly, knowledgeable and considerate. It was very nice to be a part of a small tour group- as we were able to get to know the other members of the group and chat with people as we learned about the city. The tour allowed us to see and learn about many different things and did not feel tedious or boring at all. We stopped for coffee, ice cream, and snacks (all delicious!) Highly recommend this tour as being a fun and interesting way to spend a few hours.

Great starting point when arriving Barcelona. Paulo pointed out the special hidden neighborhoods and districts in El Born to visit. Then we returned to those areas during over the next few days. Very fun and informative tour.
