My mom and I spent only one weekend in Barcelona, but it was soooo good! Thanks to Pablo, our super cool guide, for taking us around to so many places. My mom enjoyed the very old cathedrals, but I loved the stop at the market. The choriso was amaaaaaaazing!

Don't panic! I know 5 hours seems long, but I'd have stayed even longer! I'd been several times in Catalunia but this was the first time I joined a free tour and I was glad to have such a professional guide. The group was small (a French couple, and a two students) and we strolled along the roman wall, the Born area, stopped at the very touristy market and then enjoyed some very beautiful buildings by Gaudi.
