Antonia guided us through the nice little streets of the main 2 neighbourhoods downtown Barcelona, where the book's story takes place. She also did a really good synopsis of the main parts of the book as a reminder. Other people in the tour were real experts and contributed to make it a nice and enjoyable tour. I would do it...

Let me start by saying that the guide was really nice and did the best with the content she was provided. The tour was really short and consisted of made up stories and legends. They weren't even that good. Looks like if you were going to make something up you would make it interested, scary, suspenseful......something. This was really bad.

Definitely recommend- a great way to see parts of Barcelona off the beaten path and learn some of the history and legends about the city. Our guide, Cristina, was excellent and a good story teller, even though English is not her first language. There are two options - English tour starting at 830 pm, and bilingual tour starting at 930... More

It is an nice tour that allows you to visit some of the scenarios of the best-seller book "La catedral del Mar" (Cathedral of the Sea) written by Ildefonso Falcones. The guide gives a lot of information about the Medieval Age in Barcelona. Even though, in general, it is quite interesting, we lacked a bit of more references to the... More

One thing I've learned is to take tours wit local tour guides. The difference is that they are passionate about they show you. Our tour guide was all smiles and happy to accommodate detours because of City closings, etc. I recommend flipping through the pages of the book if you read it a while ago just to refresh your memory...

Neighbourhood Profile
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 musicians lasting late into the night. Fashionistas will be drawn to Portal de L’Angel, which is lined with well-known brand names and smaller boutique stands.
