We close the doors of the Pi church and turn off the lights. Using lanterns to light the way, we explore the ancestral way of seeing and living beauty. And we do it at an hour when the church is closed to all but employees - and our visitors. In these guided tours in a 14th century Gothic church, the Basilica del Pi, our visitors explore by candlelight dark, hidden spaces normally off limits to visitors: the altar, the sacrarium, the sacristy and the bell tower. On the way we discover a rich language of symbolism whose message is just as relevant today as it was in the 14th century, but whose message has been lost to time. After climbing 260 winding steps in a bell tower, open to the public for the first time in its 500 year history, and seeing the bells that were rung in the siege of Barcelona in 1714, we top off the evening with a breathtaking panoramic view of the city. The Guia Secreta is a journey into history, into another state-of-mind, with the idea of rediscovering the mysteries of the temples of Barcelona in a new, refreshing way.

It is a time travel that takes you back to the Middle Ages, also if you are lucky enough to make it a night of thunder and lightning as they had us, It would be wonderful!!!

This tour was so good I did it twice, once in the afternoon and once in the evening. The tour itself creates a mysterious atmosphere, by deciphering some of the symbolism and history of this gothic church. The church itself is beautiful, with stops at...More

Really recommend this beautiful way of spending an evening in Barcelona. The guide takes you to secret places of the Basilica and every detail is looked after: a wonderful mix of culture and entertainment. Do wear confortable shoes!
