Discover the origins of Roman Barcelona over 2,000 years ago and let your imagination see the Roman Forum in the current Plaza de Sant Jaume, that even today, after 20 centuries it remains the political power of Catalan. Walk along one of the world's best preserved Roman walls and imagine how even at that time thalasso-therapy baths were taken from the Roman Baths of Pati Llimona that we visit in the eastern part of the Roman wall.
Also enjoy the architecture and monumental buildings of the Gothic Quarter and feel in the Middle Ages, you will be impressed by the monumental Plaza del Rei with its Palace of the Viceroy and the beautiful Palacio Real Mayor. On these stairs the Catholic Monarchs greeted the navigator Christopher Columbus on his return from the first voyage to the Americas.
Christian spirituality is evoked through two emblematic churches, the Barcelona's Cathedral and Santa Maria del Mar, ultimate example of pure Catalan Gothic. This church was built in one of the shorter time, in all history, in compared to its size, with the participation of thousands of inhabitants of the Born district. This neighborhood holds beautiful surprises because of its joyful energy, full of trendy bars, restaurants and small boutiques, you will enjoy the essence of Barcelona, leaving accompanied by a glass of Cava in the famous bar La Vinya Senyor.

A fizzy pedestrian street where we enjoy the street performers, small cafes, traditional Catalan cuisine shops until you'll see the famous Boqueria market, where you can feel the gastronomic traditions of the Catalan people through his colorful and exuberant posts, or learn where the worldwide famous Iberian cured ham comes from.
