THE GOTHIC QUARTER TOUR
An immersion in 2,000 years
of cultural richness
Unique, proud, festive and confident, Barcelona has a character all its own. Ancient Romans, lavish Moors, Jewish merchants and mighty Catalan Counts all left an indelible mark on the city. Delight in colorful anecdotes and fascinating history which defines this sun-drenched city on the Mediterranean, with an arts, architecture, culinary and design scene second to none. Shared in an intimate touring experience with one of Tailored Tours experts, we meet local producers and learn the stories behind some of the city's most iconic shops, artisans & craftsmen.
From the ancient Roman necropolis to Barcelona's imposing Gothic Cathedral, we traverse the handsome squares of Sant Felip Neri, La Plaza del Rey and the elegant 19th century Plaza Real. Discover El Born, the medieval district of artisans which still today retains an affluent air, as boutique shops and magnificent architecture lead us towards Santa Maria Del Mar Basilica, holy and ethereal. We conclude at The Born Cultural Center, a stunning example of Modernist architecture, city icon and popular neighborhood hub.
The richness of Catalan art & architecture, as experienced through craftsmanship, beauty and innovation.
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.
