Visit Barcelona on wheels

We discovered corners of Barcelona that we had overlooked

It’s easy to miss the essential details of a city when visiting it for the first time. We walk by architectural elements that are part of historical monuments without noticing, we avoid buildings of great historical value, we step on tiles that have become icons of the city without realizing …

Part of our team met last week to discover more about our city. Do you want to know how we did it all in one morning without losing detail of the most unknown hideouts? On wheels. Yes, we rode on Segway and, together with a guide, we discovered things about Barcelona we didn’t know about.

After experimenting a bit how the system worked, we felt comfortable and started gliding down the Paseo Lluis Companys until the Ciutadella Park with stops to understand the history of each site. The first one of them was the Park Waterfall, designed by one of the masters of Gaudí, Josep Fontserè and its hydraulic project designed by the modernist architect.

Leaving the park we reached “La Villa Olimpica”, an emblematic neighborhood during the Olympic Games in 1992 for being the area where journalists and athletes lived during the event. After that, we headed to “la Barceloneta” with anecdotes that made us remember that the 5km of beach covering the coast are only 40 years old and its sand comes from Egypt.

Once we got to the hotel Vela, work of Ricardo Bofill and one of the emblems of Barcelona’s coast, we toured the entire area of Port Vell. The smell of seafood from restaurants located inside the harbor forced us to stop and recharge our batteries with a “bomba” (stuffed potato) in bar “L’Ostia”.

Right after, we crossed the Paseo Colon and encountered the house where Cervantes had lived and the building that used to be Pablo Picasso’s studio. Without realizing it, we had spent 2 hours and had traveled 12 kilometers!

The history of the old fishing district in la Barceloneta, the birth of Born as one of the most artistic districts of the city, the origins of Roman Barcelona in the Gothic Quarter… Touring the city on wheels without sacrificing the delve into its small streets is possible. Contact us and our advisors will design a route with an expert guide who will make you live the Catalan capital from a different point of view.

Reality is not always what it looks like

Our mind can betray us because the magic of senses can play tricks on us and make us confuse reality. What do we mean? That reality is no always what it seems. This is actually what we will experience in the next activity, a journey through the illusions created in our mind. We entered Catalonia’s Academy of Medicine and

Learn about Mediterranean gastronomy while cooking!

Gastronomy can be discovered by cooking and eating, so our proposal is a trip around the Mediterranean culinary culture through a gastronomical tour that includes everything. We start the morning by meeting with a Catalan chef to decide which dish or dishes we want to cook and later on we will approach la Boquería
