RAMBLA AND GOTHIC QUARTER TOUR
This is another interesting walking tour option in the historic part of Barcelona.
La Rambla is one of the most visited boulevards in the city; it is a very lively place, with lots of fun going on.
Starting from the top, we’ll stop at the Canaletas Fountain, where tradition has it that if you drink from the fountain, you’ll be sure to come back to Barcelona.
Walking further down La Rambla, you’ll be able to see several interesting buildings from the 19th century, smell and enjoy the Rambla’s flower markets, and, of course, take a tour inside the Boqueria Market, with its live seafood, “jamón”, fresh fruit juices, and maybe have a coffee or a “xuxo” (you’ll have to come to find out what that is!) at the Pinotxo.
The Liceo Opera House is also on the Rambla, as well as one of Gaudí’s very first projects, the Palau Güell (optional visit inside).
And of course, you’ll wander around and discover the melting pot of history, art, and cultures in the Gothic Quarter, with its Roman ruins, gothic buildings, Jewish heritage, and hidden squares….
