Barcelona like a local: Slow Tour by the Gothic Quarter and Beyond

Did you get tired of your last trip? Are you feeling stress when traveling? This Slow Tour seeks to offer the sensation of discovering the heritage, the food, and the local culture in the most genuine way possible.
Discover secrets only locals know.
We propose you to know a part of Ciutat Vella, the heart of the city, the oldest nucleus and one of the most beautiful areas of Barcelona.

Born over the remains of the Roman Barcino, medieval Barcelona led to the construction of churches and Gothic palaces that led to the disappearance of most of the Romanesque remains. Its narrow and labyrinthine medieval streets make up the ideal scenario to enjoy the city center without hurry, reveling in the remains that are preserved from the glorious past of the city.

What are we going to show you?
Unique sites, full of history, with charm and authentic, because they are places lived by the people who lived and live in the neighborhood. We show you off-the-beaten-path locations.

    Stop At: Centre Cívic Convent de Sant Agustí, Carrer del Comerç, 36, 08003 Barcelona, Spain

    The Convent of Sant Agustí Vell began to be built in 1349, but due to the construction of the Fortress of the Ciutadella, the Augustinians had to abandon the place and between 1728 and 1750 created the new convent with its church.
    Most of the old convent today houses the Ciutat Vella Civic Centre, the Barcelona Photographic Archive and the Chocolate Museum.
    The Gothic Convent of San Agustín el Viejo conserves elements of the old convent, such as a wing of the sanctuary that was restored and a lateral part of the church.


    Duration: 10 minutes

    Stop At: Sant Pere de les Puelles, Carrer de Lluís el Piadós, 1, 08003 Barcelona, Spain

    The history of the ancient monastery of Sant Pere de Puelles dates back to 945 AD, the year of its consecration. At that time, it became Barcelona's first convent of Benedictine nuns. Throughout its history, Sant Pere de les Puelles has experienced many changes in fortune that have transformed the Romanesque building, which was built outside the city walls. The attacks by Arab troops, fires, and the expulsion of its religious community in the 19th century sealed its fate, and the nuns moved to a new, permanent site in Sarrià-Sant Gervasi in 1879.

    Duration: 10 minutes

    Stop At: Capella d'en Marcús, Carrer dels Carders, 2, 08003 Barcelona, Spain

    An influential Barcelona citizen named Bernat Marcús will sponsor, among other things, the construction of a small chapel in 1166 to house travelers and also to act as a hospital for the poorest people in Barcelona.
    So initially this chapel of Romanesque style will have the name of Capella de la Mare de Deu de la Guia, being also in a right place since it was in the old Roman road that led to France.


    Duration: 5 minutes

    Stop At: Basilica dels Sants Martirs Just i Pastor, Carrer de Rere Sant Just, S/N, 08002 Barcelona Spain

    Tradition has it that this is Barcelona's oldest church. Whether this is true or not, it is clear that this 14th-century building stands in one of the Gothic Quarter's most beautiful and least explored spots. Another example of the splendor of the city in the medieval era.

    Duration: 10 minutes

    Stop At: MUHBA Temple d'August, c/ Paradis, 10, 08002 Barcelona Spain

    As you explore Barcelona's Gothic Quarter, you'll come across one of the city's best-kept secrets in a building on Carrer Paradís. Inside a small medieval courtyard, the four columns from the Temple of Augustus have survived despite the passing of the centuries. They are more than 2,000 years old, like Barcelona itself.

    Duration: 10 minutes

    Stop At: Palace of Catalan Music, Carrer Palau de la Musica, 4-6, 08003 Barcelona Spain

    We invite you to discover the Palau de la Música Catalana, the only concert hall in the world to be declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It was designed by the architect Domènech i Montaner as the home of the Orfeó Català choir. Funded by public donations, the Palau is one of the most iconic examples of Catalonia's architectural and musical heritage.

    Duration: 10 minutes

    Stop At: Frederic Mares Museum (Museu Frederic Mares), Placa de Sant lu 5-6, 08002 Barcelona Spain

    The Museu Frederic Marès is located in the heart of Barcelona’s Gothic Quarter, in part of the former royal palace which was once home to the Counts of Barcelona.
