What To Expect

Greet your ghoulish guide at the ancient Arc de Triomf structure and begin your journey under the cover of darkness. Creep through the Ribera Quarter and hear tales of the rich merchants and rowdy sailors that used to populate the area during the 14th century, and the grisly ends that befell them.

Visit paranormal places featured in Sylvia Lagarda-Mata’s book detailing supernatural sightings in Barcelona; hear hair-raising stories of the specters said to roam the streets; and gain insight into local legends sure to make to your spine tingle. Meander through Barcelona’s backstreets and immerse yourself in stories of bewitched convents, eerie apparitions and brutal exorcisms as you explore neighborhoods like Sant Pere and Santa Catarina. See the sinister side of some of Barcelona’s legendary landmarks as your guide affords you a glimpse into the gruesome history of the Church of Santa Maria, a building whose picturesque façade does not reflect the scary secrets it harbors. Conclude your terrifying tour at the square of Santa Maria del Mar.

Arc de Triomf

Built for the Universal Exposition in 1888, the Arc de Triomf stood at the head of the avenue that led to the main entrance of the fair, in Parc de la Ciutadella. The redbrick monument, built in the Neo-Mudéjar style, reflected the eclectic, decorative taste so typical of Catalan Art Nouveau in vogue at that time.

5 minutesAdmission Ticket Free

Plaça de Sant Pere

Today, the Plaça de Sant Pere is a quiet and charming corner, presided over by the church that gives the district its name. The history of this building is closely linked to the history of the city itself. This is where the old nunnery of Sant Pere de les Puel·les used to be. It was one of the most powerful in medieval Barcelona and it helped to generate the development of an entire neighbourhood around it.

very interesting tour
Sabine_L, Oct 2019
We loved the tour. It was interesting to hear about Barcelona's past and see some of the not so frequented corners of this medieval city at night. The tour guide was also very friendly

It was a wonderful tour. Stories were very entertaining. Only thing that would have made it perfect would be if guide returned us to the point we started from (arc de truimf)

The tour guide was excellent and made the tour fun! We enjoyed the stories and sights. If you like to hear stories and see that side of a city this is the tour for you.
Must do in Barcelona

This was one of the best tours I did when I was in barcelona. It was really informative and fun at the same time. The guide, Christina was beyond amazing. She knew her history and took us to places in the city you ordinarily wouldn't go. She created great ambience and included everyone in her story telling. The best was when she took us to a place in the quarter where you could spot remnants of the story that took place. Did this solo and it was fine. Loved every minute of it

The tour was OK. I have to say that it was our last night at Barcelona 7 night total so we do know a bit of the place. Some story was very good. OK tour to do by night.

Gail C, Oct 2017
This was more a history tour, not anything scary but a lot of interesting folk lore and legends. You do get to walk in real interesting sections of Barcelona that you would not ordinarily see and try to keep tract of where you are because it is fun to go back the next day and see all the small shops that are tucked along these narrow streets. Guide was excellant.

Kristen, Jun 2017
It was good. I cannot say too scary especially at 7:30 the sun is still out for a bit. Our guide was so friendly and knowledgeable and I like to see thee back areas of the gothic quarter of Barcelona and here some of the history of it. This is a nice tour to take while in Barcelona.

DouglassL_G, Nov 2016
There should be an opportunity to stop for coffee or a bathroom break in the middle. It would also be more interesting to visit sites of allegedly paranormal activity that come from more recent times than the Middle Ages.

DonaldM_S, Nov 2016
This was a fun walking tour. The guide was quite good, informative and told many stories and legends. Beware that the tour takes you through small narrow streets and the cobblestones could pose problems for those with walking issues. We had no problem finding the meeting point at the Arc d'Triomph. This is a monument in a very large square but the guide holds a red umbrella and can be seen clearly she was right under the Arc! The guide was careful and ensured we all stayed together we crossed many streets and as we were quite a few in the tour, getting separated could happen easily. We found the tour interesting and entertaining and recommend it.... its good value for money.

TD_P, Oct 2016
We enjoyed the tour - it was a great way to see different parts of the City. Christina the tour guide was excellent. The tour was based on myths and legends from different areas of Barcelona rather than mega scary ghost stories but Christina delivered them very well. Would recommend!!!

Christina I think I have her name correct, our guide was great! The information and historical content great. Unfortunately, their are no ghosts in Barcelona. They must have left with the French!

Audrey G, Jul 2016
Loved it. Not only was the tour guide incredibly captivating even if she specifically said that certain stories were more myths than real, but we got to visit the backstreets of Barcelona, the non-touristy areas where the locals seemed to hang out and eat and live. I only wish the tour was longer, the time flew because I was having so much fun!

Kate L, Jun 2016
The tour guide didn't show up so we had no ghost tour. It was a terrible experience. No one answered the phone numbers provided. We waited and waited and no one showed up. A very disappointing part of our trip.

Jamie S, May 2016
Our tour guide Christina maybe? was amazing!! The stories weren't that scary but her story telling skills were on point! She kept us interested and was very fun and knowledgable to talk to in between getting places. The stories weren't conventionally scary but mostly like wives tales. I would recommend this tour for anyone interested in seeing the town at night and hearing some fun stories.

Olga M, Jul 2015
The tour was just ok. For the price its a fine way to walk around and get to know places in the gothic area of Barcelona. I think that what made it seem not worthy was that we booked it in spanish and a couple of people booked it in english so we had to hear the stories twice. This was a BIG mistake from your company, just imagine listening to a story twice and having to wait standing in the same spot when you want to keep moving.

John C, Apr 2015
This tour was a walk to 4 sectors of the city with a ghost story attached to each. The guide was a great story teller, it was a nice night, but no real ghosts. It was a fun tour for me and 17 year old son.
