Great tour introducing us to Gaudi's architecture as well as personality. There is no way we would have appreciated Gaudi and his buildings as much on our own. Our guide really added an extra dimension with great stories and info.

Barrio Gotico (Barri Gotic)
With its iconic, old-Europe streets and alleys, this
picturesque neighbourhood is the very heart of
Barcelona. It blends historic artifacts from its days
under Roman dominion up through the Spanish Civil War
with a vibrant modern-day culture of artisan shops and
authentic culinary experiences. Avid explorers will be
thrilled to discover quaint terraces and plazas
brought to life by the many small bars and local

You can donate as much or as little as you think the tour was worth to you. There is no pressure and it is entirely up to your discretion. The meeting point for both Free Walking Tours is at Plaça Reial, off La Rambla. Just... More
