About the tour

Embark with Pepus on a leisurely stroll to discover Barcelona’s exciting Medieval Town District, which started with an elegant Roman Colony 2000 years ago. Let’s ramble on La Rambla with the Boqueria Food Market, Opera House Liceu, pass by Heritage Stores and Art Galleries, see the 2000 years old Roman Walls, Gothic Cathedral, Town Hall and the Catalonian Government Building. Join us on Kings Square where tradition locates Christopher Columbus being welcomed by the Catholic Monarchs and cheering crowds, upon returning from his discovery of a new world! We will also share the secrets of Barcelona in the middle ages, the “pooping shepherd” tradition and… let's just say, Pepus will reserve a couple of hidden treasures to top off the tour for you!

Always an awesome time with Pepus, where the area that he had to show us is somewhere that I can’t wait to see in person when I visit Barcelona. A very great tour as always.
