Guided Tour: Walking tour from the cruise port


port of Barcelona

has been linked to the history of the city since its foundation by the Romans. Thanks to the natural shelter offered by the Montjuic hill and the Llobregat delta trade develop and convert the city to one of the biggest trading centre of the Mediterranean in the Middle Ages.
The port is therefore the ideal place to start your

chronological approach to Barcelona

. By wandering through the squares and alleys of the historic centre we will take you back in time and the rich history of the city from its foundation to the time of industrialization which allowed the emergence of modernist architecture and the construction of rich mansions and unique and surprising buildings.
