It's natural and you get to know people and places in a more natural tour. They won't compete with the big companies and they shouldn't because Walking with Architecs has its own way to show you around in a sweet unpretentious way. I like their...More

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
