THE GOTHIC QUARTER TOUR
Romans, Visigoths, Moorish invaders, Charlemagne, Jewish merchants, artists, architects and master craftsmen have all shaped Barcelona's stunning Gothic Quarter. From the city's humble beginnings as an ancient Roman outpost to the mighty medieval empire that would dominate the western Mediterranean, Barcelona's Gothic Quarter is one of Europe's most unique outdoor museums.
Discover 4th century Roman fortifications, tucked away medieval squares, soaring Gothic towers, one of Europe's best preserved medieval synagogues in the largely intact Jewish Quarter, as well as the crown jewel of Catalan Gothic architecture, Santa María del Mar.
The objective of this tour is to provide a global vision of the factors that came together to make Barcelona a beacon of medieval art, architecture & cultural exchange.
"Through a combination of historical narrative, engaging story telling and spontaneous, authentic conversation, we were able to utilize lessons learned from each tour and navigate our way back through the Gothic Quarter."
