Au programme

The Barcelona Literary Tour takes you on a walk around the city visiting sites relevant to authors, novels and the history of the city. You will see the houses of famous authors, the haunts of their characters and learn about the city and the writers it has attracted over the last millennium! We will explore the words and worlds of writers both local and from abroad!

We will begin on the edge of the old town exploring the world of Don Quixote and meander through the streets from the Shadow of the Wind, before exploring the experience of Orwell in Barcelona and eventually end up in the independently spirited neighbourhood Gracia focusing on local writers.
The tour includes more stops on other writers and aspects of the city as well as a couple of stops in bars that allow for breaks.
Other things to note
The tour takes approximately 3-4 hours but includes a couple of breaks. During the breaks it will also be possible to buy a drink or some food if you wish. The tour also includes a short metro journey but the ticket is included in the cost.

I began this tour as I'm an avid reader and have an interest in the history and culture of the city. It led me to read more and more about the books set in the city eventually studying those written by writers from Barcelona and those who were passing through.

I've lived in Barcelona for the past four years and during the course of these have gotten to know the city intimately and learned a lot about it not just from reading but from exploring the meandering alleys of the old town and the expansive avenues of Eixample.

Tadgh’s tour is great! It’s a unique way to connect with the city (past to present), the literature, and the authors. You’ll get a deeper insight into different parts of Barcelona, and leave with new ideas about things to read - or reread - and places to explore. It’s fun, you learn a lot, and Tadgh is very considerate of your comfort and the pacing. He also gave some very helpful recommendations about Barcelona that have helped me navigate my trip. I highly recommend this tour!

Really enjoyed the tour and would recommend it to anyone visiting Barcelona! It was informative and my guide Tadhg really knew his stuff when explaining the fascinating literary history of the city. While it will take up most of your morning to do the tour, I can definitely say that it's worth it to see a beautiful different side to the city that most other tours wouldn't offer. On top of that, Tadhg offered lots of other helpful tips about the city. 100% recommended!
