Old Town Running Tour

Explore with us on the Old Town Running Tour the old districts of Barcelona. 2000 years of history are waiting for you to be discovered with your running shoes.

From: 70.00

Tour Description

The Old Town Running Tour will take us not only through the heart of Barcelona, the gothic quarter. We will also discover El Raval, our Chinatown ("el Barrio Chino") of Barcelona - a multicultural district but without (many) Chinese people! The La Ribera district, including the hip and trendy neighbourhood El Born. Through our central park Ciutadella back to Sant Pere where we by the way will find a special gem of Barcelona's architecture.

This tour is perfect to get a quick overview of the city centre. Very useful for the rest of your stay in Barcelona. We will run the narrow alleys and find beautiful hidden squares, used sometimes by film directors like Woody Allen to film their movies or by Antoni Gaudí for some spiritual moments in a small baroque church. Many stories are waiting for us.

On the 10K tour distance option we will run also through our "central" park of Barcelona. Ones a hated place when a citadel controlled from here the Catalan people after a long war during the beginning of the 18th century in Europe. Now a green oasis for the locals with many remains of a world fair and of course of the city fortress.

What else can you expect? This tour will take us along amazing architecture from the last 2000 thousand years, including amazing modernism architecture and stories about adventurers, the devil who helped constructing a church and a real "vampire"!

Welcome on our Old Town tour.

An extra bottle of water during summer season is recommendable. We
