Certificate of Excellence
More attraction details
Attraction details
Owner description: A twilight wander in El Born following the shadows of medieval punishments, executions and executioners, past spirits and the infamous Spanish Inquisition. Please note that, although a couple of the city's legends might be included, this is not a Ghost Tour but an historical night tour based on the darker side of Barcelona's history.

This tour provided a fascinating history of the area, with a very reasonable price. Exploring the beautiful Born and Gothic areas was made even better by our knowledgeable tour guide. Would recommend 100%

In every city I make it a point to take a night tour, and this one in Barcelona is favorite so far. Eric was fun, quick-witted, engaging and extremely knowledgable about the darker side of Spanish history. It was a great way to end our stay in Barcelona. Highly recommended.

The tour was interesting and very enjoyable. Our guide was Alexandra who was especially engaging. She was able to convey the gravity of historical tragedies in a light hearted manner so we would all retain the information and enjoy ourselves as we walked. Being so familiar with the area, she also offered some great recommendations on where to eat/drink for later.

Thank Jessica N
