A group taking parting in a guided walking tour of the Gothic Quarter

A walk through Barcelona’s past

The MUHBA city history museum has scheduled three guided walks until May under the title 'Gothic Barcelona: ​​a city in transformation'.

The Gothic Quarter is one of the most heavily-visited areas in the city and an excellent way to learn about its history and extensive heritage is to take a guided walking tour led by an expert. The MUHBA Barcelona History Museum has scheduled a regular series of such walks under the title 'Gothic Barcelona: ​​a city in transformation'. The aim of the itinerary is to explore the construction boom of the last half of the 13th and the first half of the 14th centuries, which yielded such iconic buildings as the city’s cathedral and, perhaps the most spectacular and iconic of them all – the Basilica of Santa Maria del Mar. There are three walks scheduled from now until May: on 30 March, 27 April and 25 May. The walks depart from MUHBA Plaça del Rei at 10.30 pm.

The walks offers participants insights into the construction boom of the period, which included the enlargement of the walled area of the city, and the economic splendour that transformed Barcelona into an important centre of political and religious power.

Places on the walks are limited and you are advised to sign up as early as possible. Additional information is available at the following link.
