From the Romans to the present day, the inhabitants have left their mark on these stones, and the story is there for the reading. And you needn't waste time queuing at museums; your licensed guide will take you straight in.


Plaça Catalunya and the Rambla are right in the city centre; the Rambla is a boulevard known around the world. Purely Mediterranean in nature, it leads visitors down to the sea through a variety of contrasts: old-style shops, ultramodern cafes, landmark buildings like the Liceu Opera House, and, in the center of the boulevard, there are street artists, newspaper, flower, and bird stalls, etc.

Boqueria Market is Barcelona's most popular and exotic market. It dates back to the 12th century, when farmers started to sell fruit and vegetables in the Pla de L'Os. Later, in the 16th Century, the first flower stalls appeared. Open from 8:00 to 20:00, the market sells quality fresh produce from around the world.

Plaça Reial (Royal Square) was inspired by neoclassic French urban architecture. In the center of the colonnaded square is the Fountain of the Three Graces and the two lamp posts designed by Gaudí.

Carrer Ferran was one of the main commercial centers in the 19th Century. There are no street trees and the lamp posts hang from the buildings so there is nothing to block the view of the shop windows.

Plaça Del Pi is a charming square with a beautiful gothic church, Santa Maria del Pi, with a 10m diameter rose window. Notice the sgraffito (patterns) on the façades of the houses.

Carrer Petritxol is one of the narrowest streets in the city. It is full of art galleries and cafes where you can have a"suïs (hot chocolate topped with cream). The ceramic tiles depict historical events that have happened in this street.

Historically, the city's two major Roman roads, the cardo and the decumanus, crossed the Plaça Sant Jaume. This square is the centre of the city's political activity with the City Hall facing the Palau de la Generalitat, the seat of the Autonomous Catalan Government.

Plaça del Rei (King's Square) is located right in the center of Barcelona. Here we find the Gothic Quarter, a medieval marvel, which includes the Look Out of King Martí (a rectangular tower five floors high, which was built for king Martí the Humane in 1555); the 15th century Santa Àgata's chapel (built for Bertran de Riquer); and the Saló del Tinell (a medieval hall built between 1359-1362 for King Pere the Ceremonious). The hall is large (35 meters long by 17 wide and 12 high) and was used to receive ambassadors and hold banquets. It is said that the Catholic Kings, Isabel and Ferran, received Columbus here on his return from America.

Plaça Sant Felip Neri is one of the city's most beautiful squares. Located a distance from the tourist circuit, it is framed by the baroque church Sant Felip Neri, and the façades of the houses of the shoe makers' guild (now the shoe museum) and the boiler makers' guild (now a public school).

The Cathedral of Santa Eulalia is a Gothic cathedral with 3 naves, built on top of a 4th century early Christian basilica. Started in the 13th Century and finished 6 centuries later, the Sant Iu door marks the oldest part and the façade, the newest. Visit the chapels and the 15th century cloister guarded by geese. We recommend visiting the Cathedral between 8 am and 12 am and 5 pm and 7 pm on a working day, when there are no ongoing masses.
