The Born c’est chic | 27,95€

From: 27,95

Our walking tour around the palaces, cobbled streets and boulevards from El Born. And, if you want we will end up the tour with a nice Picnic at Ciutadella Park.

Product Description

They say that the Middle Ages was a dark age with harsh living conditions, but it is hard to imagine it when you walk among palaces, cobbled streets and boulevards. Find it out with us or go back home crying.

Barcelona is on the way to becoming a Smart City, and luckily that is fully compatible with continuing having a spectacular Medieval city centre. The streets of the Born retain the charm of the eleventh century thanks to the palaces built there by the wealthy families of the time, and there is something left of the other inhabitants of the neighbourhood: merchants, ship-owners, guilds of artisans and port workers. Did you know that the inhabitants of the neighbourhood built the basilica of Santa Maria del Mar with their own resources? Yes, we could say that it was the first crowdfunding project in the world!

This neighbourhood combines its invaluable historical heritage with the present trendy places. Indeed, during recent years, it has become one of the most desirable neighbourhoods by the cool people of the city and its streets have been filled with local designer shops, bars and restaurants where you will find the best dishes and drinks.

If you think that all this is not enough, in the Born you can find as well the Parc de la Ciutadella, which was for many years the only public park in the city. We will end our tour there with a picnic under the sun among tumblers, waterfalls and neighing zebras. Yes, zebras, you read it well. However, if you do not come with us, you will never understand it.

What are you paying when you book?
Why is this not a free tour? Honestly, we would love to dedicate our lives to teaching our city to people for free, but at the moment we have not won the lottery. That’s why we want to explain you what every penny of what you pay for this tour is:
50% – for the guide – he has to recover their parents’ investment in university enrolment!
21% – these are government fees, so that they do not only waste our money but also yours.
28% – For Stemaki to be able to continue paying workers’ social security and drinks for the team from time to time.
1% – In order to continue playing the lottery.
