Relive the history of Barcelona in its most convulsive stages with this guided walk in which we will discover how the city evolved to the sound of Si vis pacem, para bellum.
We will start the tour in Plaza Nova, where we will contextualize the tour and the different times that we are going to go through. Each step we take will be a journey back in time, transporting us from the 1st century BC to the present day.
In the first place we will discover the arrival of the barbarians and Franks to the peninsula. How they accessed through Catalonia from France, and where we can see the remains of the city of Barcino.
We will continue walking until we reach Plaza del Rey, where we will talk about the Arab conquest and the subsequent siege of Almanzor. At this point there is an underground site, from which it has been possible to extract information that shows evidence of Arab customs.
After a short walk through the city that brings us closer to the coast, we will arrive at the Baluarte del Mediodía. There we will be able to observe the armament and defense constructions created against the siege of the Bourbon troops in 1714.
Returning to the center of the city we will arrive at the Plaza de San Felipe Neri. You can still see the redoubts of the shrapnel from the fascist bombings during the Spanish Civil War. This will create a precedent to delve into weapons issues and thus be able to talk about the resources used on both sides.
Finally, we will go to Las Ramblas, where our guide will talk to you about the current terrorism and the attacks of Isis in Barcelona.
Without a doubt, it will be a route that will not leave you indifferent, book now at Arkeo Tour®!
