Hotel Barcelona Catedral

Guided walks

In the Gothic Quarter

Joan Amades, in his work Stories and Legends of Barcelona, tells of an old tradition according to which, on the day of Saint Cornelius, all the husbands of the city would visit the saint’s chapel on Capellans Street, the same street where our hotel is located. It was believed that those whose wives had cheated on them would feel an itch on their foreheads as they walked in front of the image. Those husbands also believed that if they visited the chapel for seven consecutive years, the saint would protect them from their wives’ infidelity.

This is but a sample of the many fascinating stories that can be found in the Gothic Quarter. Discover many more with the free guided walks we’ve prepared for you. You’re bound to be surprised!
