      Barcelona is the capital of Catalonia and the second largest city in Spain. Founded as a Roman city, Barcelona, was the most important city of the crown of Aragon. It has played an important role in shaping the country of Spain and more importantly the region of Catalonia. They even boast their own language, Catalan, which tourists can hear spoken on the streets. Barcelona is known for its rich heritage and today is the center of culture for lovers of art, architecture, food, design and more.

      There is something for everyone and we have developed this tour to give the highlights of the best that Barcelona has to offer. We will touch on the famous modernism period that inspired the eclectic design of buildings from some of the most important architects in the last century. We will touch on Gaudi and some of his works but be sure to include some of the others who left their mark on the city as well. We will stroll the colorful Ramblas and take a peek into the Boqueria Market that is filled with a wonderful array of delights representing cuisine that adds to the unique culture of the Catalans. We will explore the highlights of the Gothic Quarter and give you great ideas of places you can return to. Finally, the walk would not be complete without a stop at the beautiful Cathedral to be explained from the outside. Where transport is necessary, you and the guide can use public transport or taxis.
