Description

Explore the medieval neighborhoods of El Born and La Ribera in central Barcelona to see the city's sordid past come to life. The 2-hour dark history tour takes you into a world of dungeons and public executions. There will be no gimmicky paranormal activity or scary pranks. Instead, you will stroll the maze of streets of Barcelona's picturesque neighborhoods to learn about real life tortures, executions, and victims of the Spanish Inquisition, all based on true historical facts. The tour takes place in English only, with exact times varying throughout the year, depending on the time of nightfall. Numbers are limited so it is highly recommended to book early.
