You can read any book, but just with few it’s possible to live and breathe them.

From letters to words, from imagination to reality.
*Exclusive product of ICONO Serveis Culturals.
Just as Daniel Sempere, Julian Carax, Fermín Romero de Torres, and the other characters of the novel, we will walk through a labyrinth of mysteries and surprises turned into a charming tour, with a bewitching Barcelona as the backdrop.
The participants of the tour will become the characters, as you move around Barcelona to places which are still recognisable to today’s inhabitants, such as: Santa Anna street, The arch of the Theatre, King’s square, Las Ramblas, Sant Felip Neri square and Montcada street. Not often do we have the possibility to turn fiction into reality but this is one such chance.
