About Dark Past Night Walking Tour
A twilight wander in El Born following the shadows of medieval punishments, executions and executioners, past spirits and the infamous Spanish Inquisition. Please note that, although a couple of the city's legends might be included, this is not a Ghost Tour but an historical night tour based on the darker side of Barcelona's history.

Fabulous night walking tour. Ali was our tour guide and did good job. She is extremely knowledgeable about the history of the Spanish Inquisition, medieval punishments and executioners. The whole tour was interesting, interactive and informative! Great experience and Ali’s enthusiasm delighted the night!
