In tourism it is said that the experiences are not created, but that they are found

What does Slow mean?

For us, above all, it means love for things well done, closeness, humanity, and authenticity. In the face of fast food tourism, stress and exhaustion, we desire to offer a more authentic way of relating to the environment and the people who inhabit it.

Stories that go beyond dates and architectural styles. Stories of people who lived here before us, before you came to know the city: workers, merchants, nuns, postmen, citizens who lived in Barcelona and who have contributed to making it what it is today.

But we also want to know you. Therefore, at the end of the tour, you can sit down and share a coffee with our guide. You will have the chance to tell him that you are interested and to tell you more about Barcelona.
