About the tour

El Born is, together with the Gothic Quarter, one of the most charming neighbourhoods of the old town of Barcelona. It was the economic centre of the city between the XIII and the XV centuries. Now a trendy and lively area located near the old port.. In our walk we will see some important buildings that have shaped the character of El Born in different stages of the history of Barcelona, such as Santa Maria del Mar church (an icon here from the XIV century), El Born Cultural Center (a former iron and glass market) and the Palau de la Música Catalana (a fantastic Modernist Music Concert Hall) These and many other buildings, the maze of streets and the nice boulevards have made of El Born a must see during your stay in Barcelona, during the day or with the charm of the lights… Come and enjoy bits and more of El Born by night!

Gracias Jesús. Your tours are great, we learn and enjoy. The rain made this night tour even more beautiful if that is possible. I’ve been to this tour three times and every time you manage to give us a fascinating tour of the Born. We highly recommend this tour. You’ll see an incredible city with a great and professional guide. Gracias Jesús!

It was a nice evening stroll in the rain, and accompanied by sensational lightning sky , guided by the ever optimistic Jesus ! We enjoyed it very much, sitting in front of our laptop screen, with a glass of our favourite drink and some crisps . Beautiful buildings and atmosphere in the rainy streets ,and interesting stories by Jesus .

Jesus braved the thunderstorm, rain and lightening to show us the amazing architecture of El Born. I learned so much and can't wait to visit for real once we are allowed to travel again.
