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.
