This is a sample itinerary for our Private Tour of the Barcelona City Center.
Final itinerary and timings might vary due to many factors (tickets availability, your location and pace, your main interests…)

9AM

GOTHIC QUARTER

The origins of Barcelona

9AM

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

Gothic Architecture
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.

CALL

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.

LA RAMBLA & BOQUERIA MARKET

A lovely stroll

10.15AM

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​

Around the Eixample district

11AM

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.

11.30AM

SAGRADA FAMILIA CHURCH

Unbelievable

11.45AM

Finally, we’ll take you to the breathtaking Sagrada Família Church, his absolute masterpiece to which he dedicated the last years of his life until his death (he could already tell then that the project would take several generations to be completed). Following his wishes and the plaster models he left (reconstructed after the damages caused by a fire during the Spanish Civil war in 1936), the construction has continued and now it’s scheduled to be finished by 2026-30. Pope Benedict dedicated the inside in November 7, 2010 during a solemn multitudinous mass.

1PM

At the end of the tour your guide can put you on a taxi or give you directions get back to your hotel or find a place for lunch. Or you might decide to stay inside the Sagrada Familia (or last site visited) and continue enjoying it on your own.
