Me and my san took a Gothic tour and we had amazing time with guide Carlos who made a tour extremely interesting, emotional and vivid. He mixed historical facts with dramatic interpretations and local fictions which was really enjoyable. Highly recommended.

We had an amazing “Gothic Quarter” tour with the one and only - Patrick. It was vibrant, interesting, lively, full of history and facts about Catalunya and the area - the perfect way to get to know Barcelona. Highly recommend- thank you Patrick!

Passing through the glorious Plaça Catalunya, you
enter the newer city district of Eixample, literally
translated as “extension,” which immediately becomes
recognizable by its more spacious streets and elegant
atmosphere. The main artery of this sizable district,
Passeig de Gracia, is lined with high-end
international designer stores. Not to be outdone, the
glitz and glamour of this zone is perhaps best
