A note from Explore hidden streets with a friend
We will keep the groups very small meaning we will not mix bookings except if we have 2 solo travellers. Otherwise we will only show you around as couple, family or your party. We will keep the necessary distance and in case you do not have a face mask we will provide one for you.

Overview
Experience neighbourhoods off the beaten path. See Barcelona through the eyes of a local. This guided walk in the historic center of Barcelona will let you discover more than the usual: buildings & squares you will not encounter easily. Immerse with us into the captivating history of the city while strolling through the maze of little streets in El Born & Gothic Quarter. Enjoy a drink in a magical square where mostly locals go. Learn about important Catalan legends. What’s the significance of the dragon? Why was a bat decisive in a battle? What’s the legend behind the Catalan flag? During this 3 hours walk we will make the connection from medieval history & legends to what inspired architects and motivates the independence movement. If you love history brought to life by passionate storytellers and want to enjoy the intimacy of a small group then this is your experience. After the walk you will discover details you have not noticed before. See the city with different eyes!
