Welcome to Barcelona Walking Tour: Gothic Quarter with Barcelona Cathedral, La Rambla and La Boqueria

This walking tour packs a lot into to a short amount of time and takes you to places where other tours don't. It's the perfect way for first-time visitors to get acquainted with the city. You'll see some of Barcelona's most beloved sights, enjoy a brief introduction to Catalan history and culture, taste locally-produced Spanish hams, and get great recommendations for what to see and where to eat during the rest of your stay.

We'll meet in the center of Barcelona's old city, where you'll pass huge fragments of the old Roman wall on the way to Barcelona Cathedral. After we explore the inside, it's time for a little surprise: special-access tickets to the Cathedral roof, from where you'll enjoy our favorite panorama in all of Barcelona. Back at street level, your guide will lead you into the narrow side streets of the city on a tour of the historic center.

We've carefully crafted a route that showcases the best of this small area. Every street, plaza and point of interest on this tour is intimately connected with the story of Barcelona. Since you're touring with a local guide, you'll also get some insight into modern politics, including Catalonia's quest to gain independence from Spain.

After a stroll down Barcelona's iconic pedestrian street, La Rambla, we arrive at the city's favorite market, La Boquería. Here you’ll explore the stalls overflowing with local meats, cheeses and other produce and you’ll learn what’s in season during your visit, and why Catalonia is considered one of the most fertile regions in Spain.

The tour ends with a ham tasting at a local jamón shop, where you’ll learn that, next to soccer, meat curing is probably the most beloved national activity of Spain. You’ll also learn about the incredibly elaborate process, from feeding the pigs, to curing the meat, that creates one of the most prized foods in the world. The best part, of course, is the tasting. If you’ve never tasted Iberian ham, this will be a highlight of your trip, if you have, it’s a chance to learn how to tell the merely good from the amazing.
