Full description
Experience the spooky side of Barcelona on a beautiful nighttime tour. Meet wenches, witches, hangmen, and ghosts of all eras on this walking tour, and hear stories from your guide collected by the Catalan ethnologist and folklorist Joan Amades in his collection "Històries i llegendes de Barcelona" (Histories and Legends of Barcelona). This tour is also inspired by the book "Fantasmas de Barcelona" by Sylvia Lagarda, who has described countless paranormal activities and encounters in almost 300 pages. In Barcelona's 2000-year-long history, countless people have seemed to find no rest after death. Cervantes once believed that the souls wander here at night. This tour of Barcelona is guaranteed to give you goose bumps with all its fantastic legends and spooky stories from beyond the crypt. Hear about the atrocities of the Inquisition and the medieval correctional system in a time when the Catholic church permeated every aspect of living, the world could not be explained, when superstitions seemed sane and the hangman didn't think twice. Listen to stories of true terror and meet a vampire whose evil deeds came to light by accident in 1912. Beware! Your blood may curdle. How well night conceals more than horror. So many shady characters sell life-affirming things like love and lust under the protection of darkness. Cast your eyes on the oldest trade in the world, strongly condemned by morality police but integral to Barcelona's history. Even the Roman legionnaires left the city gates open at night so the ladies could come and go, and the remnants of several bordellos from the Middle Ages can still be found amidst the passageways of the Old City.

Extreme interesting, exciting and informative tour

The night tour was extremely interesting and informative. We were in Barcelona for the third time and have experienced so much new and scary stuff like never before. Our guide (Johannes) is well versed in the dark history of Barcelona and can tell it very vividly. We had goose bumps a few times and we also noticed a lot. You have to be good on foot, the tour goes right across the old town and takes about 3.5 hours.

From the beginning Johannes has been extremely nice, sympathetic, witty and with the utmost enthusiasm taken the participants into the past. 3 hours without, that it was drinking something he was talking about. It was not really boring, only that it was quite difficult to be in thoughts for 3 hours.

Top Tour

Barcelona with its narrow streets at night alone is worth seeing. This experience is even better entertaining and interesting with the Ghost Tour. The guide Johannes introduced us to horror stories, myths and legends of a city metropolis, from the past to the present day. We can highly recommend this tour for adults who revealed the horror we enjoyed. A special experience.
