Full description
The past comes to life on this walking tour in the footsteps of one-time residents through winding alleyways and picturesque squares of Barcelona's Gothic Quarter. Every stone has a story to tell.

This exploration starts in the days of the Romans, continues to the Middle Ages, and then follows into the early 18th century.

Get a glimpse of more than just the history of Barcelona on this German-language tour of Barcelona. Barcelona is anything but some musty museum; it is a dynamic port city constantly reinventing itself and always changing. Every street pulses with life, and old and new blend together to form incredible scenery in a style truly unique to this Mediterranean metropolis.

• Birth of a nation: a nasty affair and a bloody situation
• How the dragon came to Barcelona

• A slightly spooky brotherhood

• We're talking to you! The advice of the hundreds and the general
• King Martin's death: the beginning of the end of codetermination
• The Jewish Quarter: the remnants of a lost world
