In this tour, we’ll tell about the foundation and growth of the city, from the Roman to the Middle Ages, and to 20th century Modernism and its conceptual Gothic ground floor. We’ll see old Roman stones, as well as some works of Gaudi’s and contemporary Domènech, including the place he was living in when he came to town, why and how Modernism came so late to Catalonia, and when did the strive for Independence or self-determination start. We will see and understand the close relationship between the old and the new city, and their economical interaction as we approach the Eixample.
In this tour, we have TWO CRAFT BEER stops, the first stop at the oldest part of the city, close to the Cathedral, and some Roman remains, the second stop close to Las Ramblas and Plaza Catalunya, the origin of the modern City Center, before we finish the tour by the old main gate to the ancient city.
Due to the nature of the tour there are some pieces of advice that are important to follow so we can make the best of our time. We´re gonna be walking for a long time, so it’s important to put on sunscreen and wear a comfortable outfit. To find the guide at the meeting point, just search for an umbrella with our logo and remember he’s gonna be waiting for you at the meeting point 10 minutes before the tour starts.
The original name of the famous market located in Las Ramblas is Sant Josep de la Boqueria which, in the beginning, was placed near the Mediterranean Sea and the river in a strategic position with great benefits for trading. The vendors were specialized mainly in goat, in catalan the word is (boc) and that is why it became La Boqueria.
