We have planned a great tour for you. Exploring the city center of Barcelona you’ll see and experience the following:

We start our tour at the impressive Arc de Triomf in the hip El Born district.

  • After the introduction you take your first shot: If you are lucky you can catch the arc with some big soap bubbles made by the local buskers!
  • Next is the incredibly diverse Parc de la Ciutadella. Locals use it for almost all imaginable activities like Yoga, boxing, sunbathing or just bringing their dogs for a playdate.
  • Located in the park is the
    • Barcelona Zoo,
    • a huge fountain with a little bit of Antoni Gaudí,
    • a wooly mammoth (!),
    • a lovely pond complete with rowing boats and the
    • Parliament of Catalunya.
  • We continue our adventure by heading back to El Born.
  • There we enter the excavations at the Born Centre de Cultural i Memoria (BCC) before we pass by
  • the Farolas de Pla del Palau (Gaudí again) and the
  • (in)famous “Shakira Fountain”.
  • On our way to the Gothic Quarter we glance at the most impressive church in Barcelona that is not Sagrada Familia: Basílica de Santa Maria del Mar.
  • After a short stop at Plaça del Rei we continue to the
  • Catedral de Barcelona, where you will find out who lives in its courtyard.
