Overview

You can read any book, but just with few it’s possible to live and breathe them. We present this walking tour as a unique opportunity to wander around the amazing Barcelona depicted in “The Shadow of the Wind”, a novel that has captivated thousands of readers all around the world. From letters to words, from imagination to reality.

Just as Daniel Sempere, Julian Carax, Fermín Romero de Torres, and the other characters of the novel, we will walk through a labyrinth of mysteries and surprises turned into a charming tour, with a bewitching Barcelona as the backdrop.

The participants of the tour will become the characters, as you move around Barcelona to places which are still recognisable to today’s inhabitants, such as: Santa Anna street, The arch of the Theatre, King’s square, Las Ramblas, Sant Felip Neri square and Montcada street. Not often do we have the possibility to turn fiction into reality but this is one such chance. Enjoy this tour with us.

"Shadow of the Wind" -Very Nice Tour!

One thing I've learned is to take tours wit local tour guides. The difference is that they are passionate about they show you. Our tour guide was all smiles and happy to accommodate detours because of City closings, etc. I recommend flipping through the pages of the book if you read it a while ago just to refresh your memory a bit. Bring comfy shoes and the 2.5 hour will fly! Nice way to walk the Gothic even if you didn't read the book.

Fantastic

Christina was our guide for the Shadow of the Wind book tour in Barcelona. What a fantastic experience! We really enjoyed touring the city and seeing the sites from the book. Christina was a perfect guide - she read passages from the book at each stop and clearly has a passion for Barcelona and educating her guests. Highly recommend this tour, even if you did not read The Shadow of the Wind!
