Did you get tired of your last trip? Are you feeling stress when traveling? This Slow Tour seeks to offer the sensation of discovering the heritage, the food, and the local culture in the most genuine way possible.
Discover secrets only locals know.
We propose you to know a part of Ciutat Vella, the heart of the city, the oldest nucleus and one of the most beautiful areas of Barcelona.

Born over the remains of the Roman Barcino, medieval Barcelona led to the construction of churches and Gothic palaces that led to the disappearance of most of the Romanesque remains. Its narrow and labyrinthine medieval streets make up the ideal scenario to enjoy the city center without hurry, reveling in the remains that are preserved from the glorious past of the city.

What are we going to show you?
Unique sites, full of history, with charm and authentic, because they are places lived by the people who lived and live in the neighborhood. We show you off-the-beaten-path locations.

What To Expect

The Convent of Sant Agustí Vell began to be built in 1349, but due to the construction of the Fortress of the Ciutadella, the Augustinians had to abandon the place and between 1728 and 1750 created the new convent with its church.
Most of the old convent today houses the Ciutat Vella Civic Centre, the Barcelona Photographic Archive and the Chocolate Museum.
The Gothic Convent of San Agustín el Viejo conserves elements of the old convent, such as a wing of the sanctuary that was restored and a lateral part of the church.

Basilica dels Sants Martirs Just i Pastor
Tradition has it that this is Barcelona's oldest church. Whether this is true or not, it is clear that this 14th-century building stands in one of the Gothic Quarter's most beautiful and least explored spots. Another example of the splendor of the city in the medieval era.

MUHBA Temple d'August
As you explore Barcelona's Gothic Quarter, you'll come across one of the city's best-kept secrets in a building on Carrer Paradís. Inside a small medieval courtyard, the four columns from the Temple of Augustus have survived despite the passing of the centuries. They are more than 2,000 years old, like Barcelona itself.

Palace of Catalan Music

It was designed by the architect Domènech i Montaner as the home of the Orfeó Català choir. Funded by public donations, the Palau is one of the most iconic examples of Catalonia's architectural and musical heritage.

What an amazing way to discover your lovely city. My husband and I never felt rushed at all. We loved all the sites visited. The tour guide walked the extra mile and even checked for restaurants and museums for us. This is a great to discover the off-the-beaten path sites too. Great job! I will use Icono again.
Perfecta alternativa al turismo masivo en Barcelona
