BARCELONA, CITY OF DRAGONS

Barcelona is full of dragons watching us from the gargoyles of the old buildings. More than a thousand of them are hiding in the façades, the streets and the squares of the city. We’ll learn about the symbology of the dragon and why it is the guardian of power of nature, and a very wise animal. There are many types of dragons: wild, magical, fantastical, terrifying…

We become investigators and follow a scavenger hunt to find them and the legends hiding behind the dragons of Barcelona.

We come into contact with the different cultural attitudes towards dragons: to the occidental they are evil, but to the oriental, they are kind and protective.

At the end of the tour we’ll be able to distinguish the main features of the different kinds of dragons: the Asian, the prehistoric, the European, the marine, the forest and the mountain dragons.
