Barcelona’s Ramblas and Old Town

We’ll explain why the Placa Real was built and lead through the city’s most ancient neighbourhood, known as ‘The Call’.  After visiting the charming Placa Sant Josep Oriol and Santa Maria del Pi, one of the most beautiful churches in the city your guide will lead you to the cathedral where we’ll tell you why an egg shell is balanced on a fountain at certain times of the year.

In La Ribeira we’ll point out to you the Picasso Museum so that you can book a ticket for later and avoid the queues.  We’ll show you the church of Santa Maria del Mar in El Born, a district which is now one of the hippest parts of Barcelona.
