This is a sample itinerary for our Private Tour of the Barcelona City Center.
The final itinerary and timings of our Barcelona walking tours might vary due to many factors (Sagrada Familia tickets availability, your location and pace, your main interests…)
GOTHIC QUARTER - 1h 30min
Your Barcelona walking tour starts strolling around the Gothic Quarter: medieval alleys and squares, Gothic patios, Roman ruins, the Medieval Royal Palace and the main government buildings.
CATHEDRAL OF ST. EULALIA
The highlight of the Gothic Quarter is the Cathedral, an outstanding Gothic basilica where you can visit its choir, remarkable side chapels, the crypt of St. Eulàlia and an old cloister with geese living in it. Depending on your preferences, you can choose to just see it from inside, just do a quick in&out to check it out, or go inside with your guide and receive full explanations.
Medieval Jewish Section
Alternatively, your guide can take you to the Call, the medieval Jewish Section, where the medieval atmosphere is still in the air despite the attacks suffered in 1391. If you are interested, you can also visit there the oldest synagogue in Europe.
RAMBLA & BOQUERIA MARKET - 1 hr
A lovely stroll
Next you will head to La Rambla, a vibrant boulevard great for people watching, and featuring a pretty flower market.
In the heart of it is located the famous Boqueria Food Market, considered one of the best food markets in the whole world. Outstanding displays, local products and exotic food, all in one place!
PASSEIG DE GRÀCIA - 45 minutes
Around the Eixample district
The second part of our Barcelona walking tour explores the Eixample District (Expansion Area), designed by Ildefons Cerdà, where Modernism, was developed between the end of the 1800s and beginning of the 1900s. In the main street, Passeig de Gràcia, you’ll see the Block of Disagreement and learn about the 3 best architects of the time: Domènech i Muntaner, Puig i Cadafalch, and of course, Antoni Gaudí. Casa Batlló and Casa Milà/Pedrera are seen from outside.
SAGRADA FAMILIA CHURCH - 1 hour
Your Barcelona walking tour will finish with a short taxi or subway ride to visit the amazing Sagrada Família Church, Gaudí’s Masterpiece. Gaudi worked here the last 43 years of his life. The completion of the whole church is scheduled for 2026-30 approx. You’ve never been in a place like that before!
Your guide can put you on a taxi or give you directions to take the subway or walk back to your hotel or to a restaurant for lunch. Or you might prefer to stay inside the Sagrada Familia to continue admiring it on your own.
