What you can expect

One of the most famous legends in Catalonia is that of St. George (Saint Jordi) and the Dragon - also the patron saint of Catalonia since 1456. The legend has it that Sant Jordi saved a princess from the clutches of the dragon, and from the blood of the beast a red rose grew.

Thanks to this legend, artists and architects chose the dragon symbol to decorate buildings, according to their imagination. With different shapes, sizes, colors, these fantastic creatures sleep in some of the most beautiful buildings in the city. Are you ready to hunt them?

On this amazing family friendly experience, you'll turn into a dragon slayer. Discover 16 dragons hidden along the route and hear stories and legends while you search for them.

Explore the Gothic quarter and El Born, see the remains of the temple of Venus, the Roman walls, gargoyles, strange dragons designed by Gaudi himself, and more. Get one extra point if you find the magic turtle!

Enjoy a tasty break of churros with chocolate to give you the energy to continue your hunt, and win a special key ring at the end if you manage to find them all!

Having lived in 4 different countries and visited 4 continents, I can step into your shoes and take you off the beaten paths in Barcelona. Even after many years here, the city doesn't cease surprising me, and I want to share that feeling with you.
