Discovery the hidden worlds of Barcelona's oldest district ~ The Gothic Quarter! We start with getting a bird's eye view over the city from the rooftop of a 13th Century church in the heart of the Medieval Gothic Quarter. With its labyrinth-like streets & hidden squares, the neighborhood is a pop up storybook of amazing history. We will see Roman ruins, Medieval buildings, and the Jewish quarter, while hearing the stories and history behind the buildings while playing a family fun scavenger hunt (the winners get an edible prize, but don't tell the kids)! All prices include skip the line entrance tickets, scavenger hunts, prizes, transportation and Spanish sales tax (21%).
In the center of the labyrinth that denotes this area, is the very well preserved Roman wall (as well as some hidden columns from the Forum). As Barcelona expanded in the Middle Ages, citizens used every nook and cranny; leaving us with a somewhat jumbled web of pedestrian streets! One of Europe's largest medieval Jewish quarters is not to be overlooked either and we will dive into this newly revived area sharing with you the history that shaped Barcelona and Europe's history. Your guide will take you inside the Antique Synagogue. You'll go behind the scenes to see Roman ruins dating back 2,000 years, see a royal palace, hear the stories of the king and queen who funded his explorations, see old headstones from the Jewish cemetery that were used to construct a royal palace, hear the history behind a secret door and much more on this exciting tour through a live pop up history book!
