Tour map

On this 2-hour tour* we cover:

  • Basilica of Saints Justus and Pastor – schoolboys who were killed for their faith
  • Madame 'Le Petit’ – once the biggest brothel in Europe
  • Enriqueta Marti – the Vampire of Raval
  • Sala Bagdad and its infamous erotic shows

...and much more

Barcelona is known for its sunshine, architecture and great food, but this beautiful city also has a dark side. Discover the true depths of depravity, desperation and degradation that envelope Barcelona’s past.

On this 2-hour walking tour, your guide will tell you terrifying tales of torture, murder and scandal. From the 20th Century female vampire who roamed the streets looking for children, to the controversial erotic shows that are still held today, the Forbidden Tour will show you another side of Barcelona.

This tour contains mature themes, and is not recommended for guests under the age of 16.


*Average tour length. The independent guides with whom we work have your best interests in mind; while the tour usually includes the sites and stories above and lasts this long, your tour may vary depending on what your guide thinks is best for your group!
