What you'll do

I'll take you around the old city of Barcelona through the Gothic, and El Borne neighborhoods. Here we'll check out the "must see" spots, like Las Ramblas, Boqueria Market, La Catedral de Barcelona, and much more. However, I'll also focus a bit more on showing you the hidden gems that only locals really know. These are the secret spots that make this city so addictive! Throughout the tour, I'll be telling you about the history of Barcelona. Starting with the Roman Village, passing through the medieval town and explain nerdy facts like why exactly Gothic Quarter is considered a Neo-Gothic Neighborhood, and end up with a stroll through the old Jewish Quarter. Most importantly, I'll also show you the best places to eat, how to drink and party like the locals, and explain a little about the Catalan lifestyle. If you like the sound of this, please sign up and join me on this unique adventure through Barcelona.

Lucy

Hello, I'm Lucy! A Brazilian girl who fell in love with Barcelona so badly that I felt compelled to move here and am constantly on a mission to get to know every corner of the city. While learning Spanish and Catalan, I studied history to learn as much as I could about the city and its culture. My curiosity has led me to explore the city and being a foodie, I found myself being a gastronomy and wine guide to my friends and its friends. So..It's seemed a natural jump to become a personalized guide (with a twist, of course) and I'd love to guide you around Barcelona in the same way I do for my friends.

What's included

Equipment
The coolest map of Gotic Neighborhood and a list with the greatest (very local) restaurants and bars in town
