Barcelona

Center of Spain's Catalonia region, Barcelona offers an inside look at this distinct culture, from its whimsical architecture to its fraught political history.

Barcelona Private and Semi-Private Guided Tours

Barcelona abounds with landmarks that reflect Catalan architect Antoni Gaudí's modernist vision, including his famous unfinished basilica, the Sagrada Familia. Stepping further back in time, Barcelona's historic Gothic Quarter reveals its origins as an ancient Roman outpost and capital of the Crown of Aragon in the Middle Ages before transitioning into a modern metropolis in the 19th century. Outside of history and architecture, the city has become famous for its regional Catalan cuisine and celebrated chocolate. Experience Barcelona's delights with Context's private and semi-private guided tours.
