About the tour

Embark with Pepus on a leisurely stroll to discover Barcelona’s exciting Medieval Town District, which started with an elegant Roman Colony 2000 years ago. Let’s ramble on La Rambla with the Boqueria Food Market, Opera House Liceu, pass by Heritage Stores and Art Galleries, see the 2000 years old Roman Walls, Gothic Cathedral, Town Hall and the Catalonian Government Building. Join us on Kings Square where tradition locates Christopher Columbus being welcomed by the Catholic Monarchs and cheering crowds, upon returning from his discovery of a new world! We will also share the secrets of Barcelona in the middle ages, the “pooping shepherd” tradition and… let's just say, Pepus will reserve a couple of hidden treasures to top off the tour for you!


Meet your local guide

Josep

Born and raised in Barcelona, Josep, or "Pepus" as everyone calls him, is a licensed guide with more than 25 years of experience showing people around his incredible city. He takes pride in his extensive knowledge of the masterpieces of Antonio Gaudi, the most outstanding architect of our time whose works include the Sagrada Familia, Park Güell, Casa Batlló and La Pedrera to name a few. He has hosted many distinguished guests, including the first man that stepped on the moon, foreign dignitaries, celebrities, actors, and 1000s of other visitors around his city. Pepus is your man if you want to get under the skin of Barcelona and discover the culture and history oozing from every street.

Josep has been guiding since Jul 1992
