Santa Maria del Mar, Plaça de Santa Maria, 4, 08003 Barcelona, Spain
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.

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.
Itinerary
Stop At:  
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.
Duration: 5 minutes
Admission Ticket Free
Stop At:  
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.
Duration: 10 minutes
Admission Ticket Free
Stop At:  
La Capilla de Marcus
Chapel Marcus is one of the oldest in Barcelona, whose foundation next to a hospital and a cemetery is due to the powerful banker Bernat Marcús. Romanesque style, is situated at the confluence of the streets of Carders and Moncada and still today you can see a part of the original structure of the twelfth century.
Duration: 10 minutes
Admission Ticket Free
Stop At:  
Barri de La Ribera
The street called Carrer de Montcada is today the most important area of mediaeval civic architecture in the city. It starts with the Romanesque Marcus chapel (12th century) and finishes at Plaça del Born. It used to be all one single street until the 19th century, when it was divided into two by the opening of Carrer Princesa in 1853. Its name derives from the important Montcada family from Barcelona who, it appears, received the land in the 12th century for the support lent to King Ramon Berenguer IV by Guillem Ramon de Montcada during the conquest of Majorca.
Duration: 10 minutes
Admission Ticket Free
Stop At:  
Basilica de Santa Maria del Mar
Also known as the "cathedral of La Ribera", is one of the most perfect examples of Gothic style architecture due to its harmonious proportions and the serenity of the ensemble. In the Middle Ages, the long periods of time it took to build a church – often more than a century – usually involved changes in architectural style. Santa Maria del Mar in Barcelona is an exception. It was built in just 55 years, from 1329 to 1384, and is the only surviving church in the pure Catalan Gothic style.

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

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

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.

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.

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.
