Cultural tours in Barcelona: The Shadow of the Wind*
The Shadow of the Wind*
You can read any book, but just with few it’s possible to live and breathe them. We present this walking tour as a unique opportunity to wander around the amazing Barcelona depicted in “The Shadow of the Wind”, a novel that has captivated thousands of readers all around the world. From letters to words, from imagination to reality.
Just as Daniel Sempere, Julian Carax, Fermín Romero de Torres, and the other characters of the novel, we will walk through a labyrinth of mysteries and surprises turned into a charming tour, with a bewitching Barcelona as the backdrop.
The participants of the tour will become the characters, as you move around Barcelona to places which are still recognisable to today’s inhabitants, such as: Santa Anna street, The arch of the Theatre, King’s square, Las Ramblas, Sant Felip Neri square and Montcada street. Not often do we have the possibility to turn fiction into reality but this is one such chance.
Starting point: Rambla de Santa Mónica, 9.
Finishing point: Palau de la Música
Itinerary: Rambla Sta. Mónica, Plaza Real (Royal Square), down Llibreteria Street. Going through Argenteria Street we reach Santa Maria del Mar and Montcada Street to discover the Santa Lucía Asylum and Xampanyet.
Next stop is Els Quatre Gats, Santa Ana Street and Canuda Street to learn about the Athenaeum of Barcelona, "a spot in the city that hasn't left the 19th century".
