Barcelona is a modern city with a very old heart. There are four historical quarters that made up the city's original center. Walking through them can be a pleasure with good weather and ice cream, but the reality is under your feet, in the walls, and also, over your head.
Let me tell you the stories of how this city became a military headquarters and a center of commerce: I'll explain its key role in the discovery of the New World, as a spiritual node, bourgeoise ruler and industrial power through the centuries up until the present.
Why did its founders choose this location? What did the protector saint do for the city? What made it so rich over several centuries? What was its role during the Spanish Civil War?
Surrounded by centuries-old buildings you'll be able to feel the legends, touch the real monuments and observe the city with the eyes of the people who lived here before, making revolutionary changes that led us to become who we are today.
