Medieval Barcelona

Private Half Day Walking Tour of Barcelona Old Town

This is a Half Day Walking Tour of the Old Town or "Casc Antic". For a series of reasons, Barcelona has managed to maintain one of the biggest -and not only in size but also in architectural diversity- Medieval districts in Europe.

Starting with the Gothic Quarter (Barri Gotic) properly speaking, which grew around the Roman forum, your Barcelona Tour Guide will take you for a pleasant walking tour through this maze of narrow winding lanes.

After visiting the Cathedral and its Cloister, we'll leave the Gothic Quarter properly speaking for another part of the Old Town: the Ribera (shore) district, around the Santa María del Mar church, where sailors, traders and craftsmen lived and worked during the Middle Ages.

Finally, our steps will bring us back to the Rambla to rest at one of its open air terraces and watch the crowds and the show!
