DETAILS
On this walking tour, you will learn about Barcelona’s history, from the period of the Romans through the medieval period until the twentieth century. This will also be demonstrated by hand and brush of the famed artist Pablo Picasso.
The tour will start at the well-known Ramblas of Barcelona. You will then be guided to the Reial square, where the ancient Convent of Santa Madrona was situated. You will also stroll to the Square of Sant Jaume, which was the headquarters of the local government during the medieval period and it still is. The walk through the narrow cobblestoned avenues will take you to the Cathedral of Barcelona, where you will also explore the Plaça del Rei which is also known as King's Square. This is a unique historical site of Barcelona’s royal power. Its ruins which were the Roman city of Barcino are well-preserved underground.
The walking tour heads to the fourteenth-century basilica of Santa Maria del Mar, in the community of “El Born.” Here there are also hidden alleyways to the Picasso Museum, which is home to the most important collection of works of Picasso from his early life when he was an art student.
The last stop of the tour will be at old Born market. Since the middle ages, this market has historical importance to the city of Barcelona. The market began as open air, in the square, and then moved into a contemporary iron building. It started as a retail market and later became a wholesale market for the expanding Barcelona city. It became the model of Barcelona's market system. After half a century the market was closed, its archaeological remains are well conserved, which you can view as you enjoy a fantastic breakfast in its gastronomic space.
