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

We suggest a new tour created day by day from our own walks.

¿Qué significa Slow Travel?

Para nosotras significa sobre todo amor por las cosas bien hechas, cercanía, humanidad, y autenticidad. Frente al turismo del fast food, el estrés y el agotamiento, queremos ofrecer una manera más auténtica de relacionarnos con el medio y con las personas que lo habitan.

Slow Gothic Tour

¿Te cansaste de tu último viaje? Las colas para acceder a los monumentos, las banderas de los grupos de cruceros, los paraguas de los recorridos … ¿te ha generado estrés el viajar?

Siguiendo la filosofía de Slow Travel, proponemos este Slow Tour que, además de ser sostenible y respetuoso con la ciudad, es una propuesta que busca ofrecer un tipo de turismo pausado, alejado de las multitudes para poder prestar toda la atención y experimentar  la sensación de descubrir el patrimonio, la comida y la cultura local de la manera más genuina posible

Este recorrido no es un clásico, es una ruta “atemporal”, sin seguir un orden cronológico. Te proponemos conocer una parte de Ciutat Vella, el corazón de la ciudad, el núcleo más antiguo y una de las zonas más bellas de Barcelona.

Nacido sobre los restos de la ciudad romana Barcino, la Barcelona medieval condujo a la construcción de iglesias y palacios góticos que llevaron a la desaparición de la mayoría de los restos románicos. Sus calles medievales, estrechas y laberínticas, conforman el escenario ideal para disfrutar del centro de la ciudad sin prisas, deleitándose con los restos que se conservan del glorioso pasado de la ciudad.

¿Qué te vamos a mostrar? Sitios especiales, llenos de historia, con encanto y autenticidad, porque son lugares vividos por personas que vivieron y viven en el vecindario, y también desconocidos para el público en general.

Ready to discover the real Barcelona?

If you do not like conventional speeches of guides who repeat the same script day after day, Slow Gothic Tour is what you are looking for.

The only tour where you can sit and chat with the guide.

We are interested in meeting you We do not want to offer you a typical tour to explain the typical things about the city in an anonymous and impersonal way.

On this tour, you will not feel like one more tourist of the bunch anymore. We explain a lot of interesting stories about the past and present of the city. 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.

We do not like rush and in this tour, we take it easy.

 

What will you see in the Slow Gothic Tour?

Santa Maria del Mar and Montcada street

Many people know Santa Maria del Mar. But not as we explain it to you here. A church for the town built in only 53 years by the citizens of Barcelona. Do you know why the Virgin at the entrance looks towards Montcada Street? Tradition says that the Virgin saved the life of a craftsman unjustly condemned to death.

FAQ about the Slow Gothic Tour

What is a regularly scheduled tour?

A regularly scheduled tour is a tour that we do with scheduled departures. You buy your ticket for a specific day and time and you will share the tour with other people. We care about the quality of our tours, so you will never find mass groups. If many people sign up, we divide the group into two. In the case of the Slow Gothic Tour, you will never find more than 12 people. In the rest of our regular tours, the maximum is 22 people.

What do you need to do a regularly scheduled tour?

Once the reservation is made, you only have to show up at the meeting point at the indicated time.

We recommend wearing comfortable shoes because the tour is on foot. If it’s summer, maybe a bottle of water or something to refresh you may also come in handy.

How can I customize the experience?
