TOUR DESCRIPTION
WHAT WILL WE EXPLORE ON THIS RUN

Explore with us the old town districs of Barcelona. 2000 years of history are waiting for you to be discovered with your running shoes.
The Old Town tour will take us not only through the heart of Barcelona, the gothic quarter. We will also discover El Raval, our Chinatown ("el Barrio Chino") of Barcelona - a multicultural district but without (many) chinese people! The La Ribera district, including the hip and trendy neighborhood El Born. Over our central park Ciutadella back to Sant Pere where we by the way will find a special gem of Barcelona's architecture.

This tour is perfect to get a quick overview of the city centre. Very useful for the rest of your stay in Barcelona. We will run the narrow alleys and find beautiful hidden squares, used sometimes by film directors like Woody Allen to film their movies or by Antoni Gaudí for some spiritual moments in a small baroque church. Many stories are waiting for us.

On the 10K tour distance option we will run also through our "central" park of Barcelona. Ones a hated place when a citadel controlled from here the Catalan people after a long war during the beginning of the 18th century in Europe. Now a green oasis for the locals with many remains of a world fair and of course of the city fortress.

What else can you expect? This tour will take us along amazing architecture from the last 2000 thousand years, including amazing modernism architecture and stories about adventurers, the devil who helped constructing a church and a real "vampire"!

Welcome on our Old Town tour.

    Beside of a big smile, you should be prepared for the weather conditions during the different seasons. So normally light running equipment is absolutely sufficient for Barcelona's climate. Especially in spring, summer and also parts of fall we always recommend to use any kind sun protection. A bottle of water during summer season is recommendable. We will also pass on our running tour many fountains with drinking water.

    Should children join us on a tour, then it should be in summer time obligatory to use caps and sun protection (sun lotion SPF 50+).

    And don't forget, we can have also sometimes some rain in Barcelona! So please be prepared by checking the weather forecast and with a light rain jacket. But don't worry, that happens not very often.
