The Free Introduction to Barcelona 2.5h Guided Walking Tour is the perfect way to discover our city. Whether you’re here for just a day or for longer our English (or Spanish) speaking, long-time residents of Barcelona will open your eyes to the beauty and mystery surrounding this great city and help you get the most out of your stay. We will step back in time and walk you through the history of the region, the city and its people, from its Roman birth through the Middle Ages to the events and conflicts of modern times that shaped it and brought it to life. We will show you everything from a naked Italian man to Roman ruins and art by both Picasso, Dali and Miro. It includes "traditional" tour elements like architecture, (old) churches, flags and monuments but we will also show you animals like dragons, griffons, gargoyles and even a unicorn. You will learn about the Columbus connection, the Spanish Civil War, the 1992 Olympics, the Independence movement, why La Rambla is famous, words in a new language, about local sports, the regional culture and cuisine, where to go and where not to and much, much more.After the tour we will give you the unique opportunity to sit down in the Travel Bar with the guide to talk, discuss, ask questions and make new friends with your fellow travelers over a glass of locally produced beer or lovely Sangria, Spain's famous wine punch, and maybe even some tapas? The meeting point is in Travel Bar, just off Las Ramblas on the street leading straight away from where the Miró mosaic and the Chinese Dragon is, rain or shine, daily at 11:00, 13:00 and 15:00 in English (y a las 11:00 también en Espanol).
