Barcelona Free Walking Tour

  • 690 reviews | 5,125 travellers
    A+. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. I was astounded by this excellent tour having assumed (incorrectly) that nothing truly good is ever free. I couldn't have been more wrong or more pleasantly surprised. Filipa, our guide, was an expert with 10+ years as a guide, a Political Science degree, and exceptional people skills. Our group hung onto every word of her smart, interesting, entertaining tour. She's also funny and charming and genuine, and clearly enjoys what she's doing. We happily tipped generously!!!

Barcelona Free Walking Tour

We'll meet in Plaza de Catalunya, the nerve centre of the city. Our two-hour tour begins by walking along La Rambla, Barcelona's most famous street, until we reach the Gothic Quarter, the place where the ancient Roman Barcino originated, full of secrets, legends and curiosities.

Entering the Gothic Quarter we'll be immersed in the medieval era. Here we'll find places such as Sant Jaume Square, home to the Town Hall and the Palau de la Generalitat, the Cathedral of Santa Eulàlia and its mysterious gargoyles, the King's Square, where they tried to assassinate Fernando "The Catholic" or the remains of El Call, the old Jewish quarter.

The walk continues through the emblematic Born district, one of the most pleasant in the city. Cafes, small boutiques and cocktail bars define this area. Here you'll also find the mythical Cathedral of the Sea, which we'll visit to learn about its history.

The free tour of Barcelona ends next to the Fosa de les Moreras.


It's not possible to take this free tour of Barcelona if you are a group of more than 6 people. In that case, you can book the private tour of Barcelona.
