Join this walking tour by night to enjoy the dirty and crazy history of fun in Barcelona and see a different side of Barcelona.

Prepare to experience the “dark” side of Barcelona in this night tour: a city of sex, drugs and absinthe and an iconic destination for travellers looking for fun since the 19th Century.

Follow us to famous and lesser known corners of Barrio Gótico and Raval districts to find out the historical bars where Hemingway used to drink, the location of Picasso’s favourite brothel and the story of the first gay pride in history!

Meanwhile listen to the amazing stories of famous thieves, drug-dealers and anarchists that forged the legend of “Barrio Chino” (Chinatown), one of the craziest and most surprising downtown areas in Europe.
