Catedral (cuadras)

Gothic Quarter (Old Town)

Strolling through the Old Town is to taste 2000 years of history.

What is the background of Barcelona that has made of it the Modern city that it is? The Old Town tells us the history of the city that was the capital of the most important military navy in the Mediterranean.

History and anecdotes will make Magic this part of the city: a walk in the Rambla, the avenue where things happened; to go into a food Market that began in the twelve hundred; a time when the Cathedral represented the power of the economy; a city that hosted the biggest Jewish community in the Iberian Peninsula; and the Roman Temple will tell us who and why founded the city.

Halfway through the tour it is a must to stop to taste the “Suïs”, hot chocolate with cream and churros, in one of the historic hot chocolate stores.
