Full description
The starting point of our tour is in the Barcelona city centre, at the Square named Plaza Carles Pi i Sunyer. Our first stop will be the Plaza Nova, where you will find the ruins of the Roman Wall and one of the City gates of that period. Next, we will visit the majestic Cathedral of Barcelona with its impressive Neo-Gothic façade. Immersed in the heart of the Gothic Neighbourhood, we will visit the Plaza del Rei. It is bordered by diverse palace buildings; this picturesque square with its typical architecture evokes the political and economic prosperity of medieval Barcelona. After that, we will visit Plaza Sant Jaume, the political centre since the outset of the city’s history and where its most important buildings are located for the Barcelona and Catalonia society: Town Council and the Palacio de la Generalitat (Regional Government Palace). On the photogenic street called Calle del Bisbe, we arrive at the unique Plaza de Sant Felip Neri, one of the City’s most charming Medieval spots. From there, we enter the old Jewish Neighbourhood where we will learn about its interesting history as we stroll along its narrow streets. Our route through the historical City Centre will end at the perpetually busy Plaza del Pi, overlooked by its Gothic Church. Next, we will begin a stroll along Las Ramblas, towards the port; we will stop at each one of the most emblematic places of this famous avenue such as the Boqueria Market, Liceo Opera Palace, La Plaza Reial, etc. Before arriving at the sea, we will discover the first relevant architectural work by Antonio Gaudí: The Güell Palace, a building that has been declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. At the end of Las Ramblas, the monument to Christopher Columbus is undoubtedly one of the city’s icons; this will be our last stop prior to commencing the navigation by boat. The boat trip by the prestigious nautical company “Las Golondrinas” will have an approximate duration of 1 hour. As we navigate, we will discover the port and the maritime façades of Barcelona. It will be a relaxing ride with unique views of the city and its environment.

    The city tour was very well thought out. This is highly recommended if you want to understand the history of the city. You are taken to places that you might not have discovered yourself. The harbor cruise was also great for seeing the city skyline.
