“Every book […] has a soul. The soul of the person who wrote it and of those who read it and lived and dreamed with it. Every time a book changes hands, every time someone runs his eyes down its pages, its spirit grows and strengthens.” This is how Carlos Ruiz Zafón’s worldwide bestseller “The Shadow of the Wind” (“La Sombra Del Viento”) begins. The novel is set in Barcelona and starts in 1945, when the city slowly heals from the Spanish Civil War wounds. The action takes place all over the city and the protagonists traverse Barcelona trying to find out the truth about enigmatic Julian Carax, solve the mysteries, and most of the time escape from the police.During this walking tour in the footsteps of the characters from the book, we will explore this magical Barcelona: from the medieval Gothic quarter to elegant and high-class Tibidabo, discovering city charming streets, squares and cafés. You will see the most famous parts of the city (but also some locations slightly off the beaten track) and learn some interesting facts from Barcelona and its history. Let’s immerse ourselves in the city and experience its charm and mystery described in the novel.

  • Most of the route can be done on foot, however, the last two points, important for our tour, are located in remote areas of Barcelona (Tibidabo and Montjuic). The best way to get there is by metro
