Full description
The tour starts from the well-known Ramblas of Barcelona leading you towards the Royal Square, where the old convent of Santa Madrona was located. Then walk to the square of Sant Jaume, the seat of the local government during medieval times and at the present time. Stroll through narrow cobbled streets until you reach the Cathedral of Barcelona where you will also find the King's Square (plaça del Rei), a unique location and historic center of the city's royal power that preserves under its feet the remains of what was the Roman city of Barcino.

Afterwards go to the basilica of Santa Maria del Mar, which dates back to the 14th century, located in the neighborhood of “El Born”. In the narrow streets of this quarter is the Picasso Museum, home to the most important collection of works from his early life when he was studying art. Museum guided visit included. For those who bought the tour without the breakfast option, your visit will finish here. You are free to remain inside the building as long as you wish. For those who bought the tour with the breakfast option, you will continue your visit by going to the concert hall "Palau de la Música Catalana" to enjoy a local breakfast.
