In addition to the stroll on this narrow street, you will get a personalized visit to the boutiques. Here, you get the chance even to walk behind the counter and see where the art is created, the atelier.

During the tour, you will then take a break in a centenary café where you can enjoy some of the best chocolates in Barcelona.
