Forbidden Tour of Barcelona

From EUR 14

Barcelona is known for its sunshine, architecture and great food, but this beautiful city also has a dark side. Discover the true depths of depravity, desperation and degradation that envelope Barcelona’s past. 

On this 2-hour walking tour, your guide will tell you terrifying tales of torture, murder and scandal. From the female vampire who roamed the streets of Raval looking for children in the 19th century to the controversial erotic shows that are still held today, the Forbidden Tour will show you another side of Barcelona.

This tour contains mature themes, and is not recommended for guests under the age of 16.
