About Kids&Cat
Barcelona with all five senses Kids&Cat creates unique experiences for children, teenagers and families to discover Barcelona the same way a child does. We explore the city with families from around the world and we give the chance to the local families to re-discover it from a different point of view. We offer educative leisure activities in English, Spanish, Catalan, and German. A kid’s will to learn and play is endless. We believe in the experiential learning derived from the play and the curiosity towards exploring and questioning. Children play the leading role in the adventure and take part in it at all times. We want to awaken their imagination, mainly by stimulating their five senses, so they have the chance to wonder and fulfil their need to explore, perceive and understand the world. And we are convinced that learning is far more valuable when shared, with other children, but also with the family. Together, we travel in time to discover Columbus and the “New World”, understanding how cocoa and spices arrived here, or the legacy of the “indianos” in Barcelona. We enter medieval Barcelona to discover its legends and to find out how the children of those ages played, and we investigate where the dragons of the city hide. We go deep into the street art and the graffiti of the city, and we become graffiti artists with the family for a day. We awaken the curiosity of the children towards the architecture of Barcelona by giving their creativity free rein, and we even give them the opportunity to discover new flavours by experimenting in the kitchen. … and all of this taking part in the adventure, touching and smelling, following hints and maps to make use of the brain while learning, in the own language or another one – enjoying it at the same time.

How was the world perceived 500 years ago? What was life like at the docks in Barcelona in 1492?And on board a caravel? What were the voyages of Columbus to the “New World” like? Was he really the first one to arrive there?

We wonder about all this and we find the answers together. We learn how to locate these events in an symbolic timeline, and we touch and smell food we use daily that came from America and Asia, such as spices and cocoa.

We think about the history and suppression of the native, slavery and the relevance of respect and morals of different peoples and cultures.

We visit Casa Xifré and we become detectives to rediscover elements related to the sea, the exotic tropics, and the indiano heritage in Barcelona. This way, we can understand the economical and exotic wealth the “discovery of America” brought to Spain.

We try to finish our tour in Casa Gispert, one of the oldest colonial shops in the city, where we can still feel the smell and the mysticism of the past.

Barcelona is full of dragons watching us from the gargoyles of the old buildings. More than a thousand of them are hiding in the façades, the streets and the squares of the city.

We become explorers and go on a treasure hunt, in which we'll discover the secrets behind the dragons of Barcelona. There are many different types: wild, magical, fantastical, and even terrifying. Will we be able to find them?

Besides, the dragons are our guide to tell many legends about the history of the city, all this in a very interactive and fun way!

At the end of the tour we’ll be able to distinguish the main features of the different kinds of dragons and we will have learned a lot about Barcelona itself.
