guided walk around Barcelona’s old town
small-group tours accompanied by qualified guide
historic quarter with bars and restaurants
What to expect
Narrow side streets, hidden courtyards as well as majestic city palaces and open squares along with a dazzling array of bars and restaurants make up the charming atmosphere of Barcelona’s Gothic Quarter. So come with us on a walk through the old town, discover a vital part of the city’s history and follow your guide through the quarter’s labyrinthine alleys into the heart of Barcelona.
Together with the quarters Raval and Barceloneta, el Barrio Gótico makes up the old town of Barcelona, whose many historic buildings stem from the 14th and 15th century, the city’s heyday as a naval power. However, its origins go all the way back to Roman times under emperor Augustus. In the centre at Plaça Sant Jaume, where today Barcelona’s town hall and the Catalan government building stand proudly vis-à-vis, the Roman Forum once had its place and the quarter’s Catedral de la Santa Creu i Santa Eulàlia was built on the remains of a Roman temple. Starting in the late 19th century, the Gothic quarter underwent massive restoration works and, just in time for the 1929 International Exhibition, regained its original splendour, which still attracts tourists and locals today.

This guided tour will take you to know the first house built by Antoni Gaudí, a house with an unusual oriental and Mudejar aroma, covered with spectacular green and white tiles.
Casa Vicens was built as a summer home between 1883 and 1885; it was designed by the 31-year-old Gaudí for Manel Vicens i Montaner (1836-1895), a broker-dealer. It is Gaudí’s first building in Barcelona where he was able to display his enormous talent.
In Casa Vicens, Gaudí recreated the figurative worlds that were fashionable at the time, but in a highly personal way. It heralds and displays the creative freedom that would become the hallmark of his entire future oeuvre.
In addition to being one of the starting points of Gaudí’s career, the architect created an innovative, original work in Casa Vicens which is different to anything that had been built in Catalonia before it. Casa Vicens thus became one of the first examples of the aesthetic renewal of art and architecture which was taking place all around Europe in the late 19th century.
Don’t miss a thing at this gem of Modernisme with the Casa Vicens guided tour.
Led by one of our in-house experts, you will discover and learn more about the innovative language Gaudí used in the structural, decorative and symbolic elements in each space. As it is a personalised tour, in small groups, you will learn more about Antoni Gaudí and his significance. Because visiting the house not only gives visitors a look at the beginnings of his career but also helps them understand his later work.
You can wander around the house at yout own pace as long as you like to admire every nook and cranny of this first masterpiece of the Modernism movement.
Language of the tour:
The building and routes have been adapted with different resources to facilitate and improve visitors’ experience at Casa Vicens. Accessible tour for people with people with reduced mobility.

A wealth of forms, structures and decorative elements awaits the visitor and what better way to explore them, than on a tour led by an expert guide, who answers all your questions?
And details there are to discover many. Gaudi’s architecture is considered unique due to his very personal interpretation of Modernism and Art Nouveau, which gives thought to every minute part. His unparalleled style, inspired by his great passions architecture, nature and religion, combines functionality with aesthetic design as well as religious meaning, so many seemingly random elements fulfill not only an architectural purpose but are also full of significance. The columns in the central nave, for example, branch out like trees to support the weight of the vault and, at the same time, evoke the feeling of walking through a forest, which in turn symbolises the harmony of belief and nature and inspires introspection and prayer.
