What you'll do

First we will meet at a cafe where you can taste some delicious churros and chocolate, and we can get to know each other. During our chat, I will introduce a bit about Barcelona and the Gothic neighborhood in particular. Then we will walk around to uncover some of the stories of the city’s past as a Roman town, a medieval town, the Civil War, and the tragic legend of the city’s patron Saint, Santa Eulalia - Together we will discover all of the hidden secrets of the Gothic neighborhood! In addition to some historical information, I will also tell you about local stories or anecdotes to help paint in the picture of the area so that you can create your own memories and understanding of the area and have a better view overall of Barcelona. Just follow me, your local friend!

Kimberly

I'm an American who has been living in Barcelona since 2010. During all of my years living here I never stopped being a tourist and I spend my free time going to cultural events and festivals where I am dedicated to increasing my understanding of the city. Despite teaching English for 5 years, I discovered that my true passion in the city was showing others around and sharing the magical feeling that I felt when I first arrived. I like to share lots of stories and anecdotes about the local history and culture as well as the local life. I am excited to be your new local friend! Feel free to check out my profile for other experiences in the city during your stay! Or message me if you are interested in a private or personalized half/full day tour.
