What you'll do

Have you ever tried time travel? That is what we will be doing while exploring the narrow and charming streets of Barceloneta’s old-fashioned fishing neighborhood, famous for its balconies displaying clothes hung out to dry in the sun, and the smell of the sea.
Starting seven centuries ago, when today’s Barceloneta was still all water, we will be uncovering the traces of the district’s fascinating history, picturing ourselves as the fishermen who settled in the original baroque quarter built by the military, and imagining how their lives and the whole neighborhood changed with the setting up of naval and metal industries.
We will discover all kind of hidden stories, meet one of Barceloneta’s most renowned residents, and walk along the coast while having bread with chocolate, the original snack that small beach bars offered to the first swimmers back in the twentieth century.
If you want to immerse yourself in the unique history and culture of Barcelona, come enjoy a fun experience in one of the most appealing neighborhoods in the city! You will benefit from a special launch offer and you'll be able to get a bunch of useful local recommendations to make the most of your stay :)

Hi! I’m Núria, a catalan girl from Barcelona, a passionate storyteller and a history, art and culture enthusiast. I have a Degree in Humanities and a MA in screenwriting and I’m always reading and learning new things about my city.
As Tyrion Lanister says; “there’s nothing more powerful than a good story”, and I really enjoy sharing my knowledge through unique and engaging tales. I love meeting travelers from all over the world and showing them around the bright, vibrant quarters of Barcelona.

バルセロナの港町・バルセロネータを巡るツアーです。Núriaさんのおかげで、観光地としてのバルセロナのみならず、一般人が生活を送るエリアについても深く知ることができ、よかったです。

Nuria is such a warm person and made us feel really comfortable. She has all a smile that really brightens the room. In reference to the tour, we felt like we walked a tremendous amount to reach a location that didn’t have much to offer or a story to tell. The longer the walk the greater the expectation we had. In her description she offered many stories that we felt we didn’t get to hear in that creative way, but more of an informative and historical lecture.

Núria conoce la Historia y las historias de Barcelona y, además y muy importante, sabe transmitir sus conocimientos. La ruta es muy interesante, amena y divertida, con buen contenido histórico-social y anecdotas y curiosidades que hacen que parezca muy corto el tiempo que pasas con ella. La zona no es quizás de las más conocidas turísticamente de Barcelona, pero se merecería serlo. El barrio es auténtico y ofrece una visión diferente de la ciudad. Por si fuera poco, las vistas son excelentes. Y es un lugar magnífico para obtener unas fotografías originales!. Núria es muy amable, se preocupa por todos y atiende todas las preguntas y necesidades que puedan surgir, incluso se guarda una agradable sorpresita para el final! Sin lugar a dudas, lo recomendaré y repetiré con Núria en otro tour. Núria knows well the history of Barcelona and, most importantly, she knows how to communicate her knowledge. The tour is very interesting and entertaining, and it includes good historical and social content, as well as fun stories that make time you spend with Núria fly fast. The area is not one of the most famous among tourists, although it should. It is an authentic quarter and it lets you experience the city from a different perspective. Besides, views are excellent and it is a great area to get some original pictures! Núria is very kind, she looks out for everyone and deals with all the questions and needs, and she even keeps a little surprise for the end of the tour! Without a doubt, I will recommend this experience and take another tour with Núria.

We book this tour for our students because we wanted them to know more about our city and not only everything was perfect, but they felt, in every instance, that Núria truly cared about them. She did a magnificent job, fabulous and outstanding. The combination of history, curiosities and a snack offered in the middle of the tour, made this experience unique. We had the impression the students learnt the secrets of la Barceloneta at the same time they enjoyed a pleasant afternoon walking around the narrow streets of this neigheborhood that hides unimaginable stories. We recommend it either for schools, families and groups of friends.

Es una persona cercana con pasión por lo que hace. Y eso se nota a la hora de conectar con la historia. Cuenta anécdotas curiosas que la mayoría desconocemos.
