BARCELONA NIGHTLIFE FREE WALKING TOUR

The Barcelona Nightlife Tour is a walk after sunset to know the dirty and crazy history of fun in Barcelona.

Prepare to experience a very different Barcelona in our Barcelona Nightlife Tour: a city of sex, drugs and absinthe. You’ll get to know the most incredible stories about how the people of Barcelona enjoyed themselves after sunset from the Roman Age to the XX Century. We’ll show you the convent where a miraculous gender change took place in the Middle Ages, the dirty bars and brothels where the American sailors had fun in the 50s, the narrow alleys where legendary thieves and “bandoleros” scared the entire city. Hear the unbelievable stories of illustrious guests like Giacomo Casanova, Ava Gardner, Pablo Picasso and Buffalo Bill. What were their favourite drinks and drugs, the music they listened to, the bars where they partied? Join us know how the legend of the craziest party city in Europe was forged.
