    Hi, my name is Alexander and I'm living and working in Barcelona. I'm a very social person who loves to show other people around. My expertise is historical Barcelona, specifically the civil war but not just that. I would love to show you the central parts of Barcelona and its history.

  • What you will see and do

    If you want to see where and what's left of the old Roman city of Barcino (Barcelona). If you want to see the old town and its small medieval streets. If you want to walk around in George Orwell's civil war Barcelona, come with me!

    I'll show you around and tell you about the rich history that this city has to offer.

    We will first start by walking around the old Roman part of Barcelona (Barrio Gotic) - After that, we will continue walking in the Gotic / Born area where we will experience the medieval period of Barcelona, the Jewish quarter, cathedrals, and other things.

    We end the tour by walking in the footsteps of George Orwell and the places he writes about in his book "Homage to Catalonia". This takes us around Gotic, Las Ramblas and finally Placa Catalunya.
