Meet your expert guide at Santa Maria del Mar Square and embark on your Barcelona walking tour. Your guide will tell you all about the main characters as you explore the novel's main spots, such as the Church of Santa Maria del Mar, built by local fishermen and instantly recognizable by its octagonal towers and large, rose-shaped stained-glass window.
Walk the top of Collserola Mountain, which connected the northern city of Ampurias with the southern city of Tarragona, and enjoy commentary from your guide about the scene from the book that happened here -- when Bernat discovered for the first time his freedom and the immensity of the sea.
As you discover the real settings of the novel, admire Gothic Barcelona. Explore the Born Quarter, with characteristic narrow streets and quaint café-lined squares. Visit the atmospheric Jewish Quarter, located between the Barcelona Cathedral (La Seu) and Plaça Jaume, and get a fascinating insight into both Barcelona's history and the story of Jews in Catalonia. Finally, reach Cathedral Square, where your tour will end. From here, you may continue your exploration of Barcelona at your own pace.

Outstanding! Excellent info provided. Antonia (I think that was her name), made the tour an easy path to understand the history of Catalonia, Spain. Without any doubts, I will take it again.
