Overview

Explore the rich history of the El Born neighborhood as you wander through the gorgeous streets of Barcelona. Your guide will explain local life as you meander past cultural highlights, such as the palatial concert house, Palau de la Música Catalana, with its finely detailed sculptures and the vibrant Santa Catarina market. Stroll along Montcada Street, lined with medieval mansions, one of which houses the museum to Barcelona’s favourite adopted son, Pablo Picasso. And if that isn't enough, you'll also get to see the stunning Basilica Santa Maria del Mar and a former jousting venue, Passeig del Born.

This is a private live virtual tour. Our professional, local guide will be showing you Barcelona’s most fascinating sights in real time, directly from the streets of Barcelona. You will be connected via video call and you can then explore the city together. With your experienced guide you will see more than just the Barcelona of today, you’ll also get a glimpse back in time because each tour is complemented with an excellent selection of multimedia. You will be shown historic photographs and videos to help with explanations, stories and the historical context of Barcelona's incredible and turbulent past. You can’t get any closer to history without a time machine!

The entire tour is designed to be as interactive as you desire. You can ask questions, you can request to go back and look at something again, you have all the freedom and participation of a private walking tour, all from the comfort of your own home.

The video calling software used for the tour is called Zoom. You will need to have it downloaded on your laptop, tablet or cellphone – with a connection to speakers or headphones – in order to participate in the tour. Also, remember to keep an eye on the time difference when choosing a time for your private virtual experience, as all times stated are in Barcelona time!
