Bring your imagination into reality on this once-in-a-lifetime to be transported into the setting of a book! Walk through a labyrinth of mysteries and surprises that blur the boundaries of reality, time and place as told in the literary masterpiece The Shadow of the Wind.

Set in Barcelona after the Spanish Civil War, the story follows the adventures of Daniel, a boy who finds consolation from the death of his mother in a book called The Shadow of the Wind by the author Julian Carax. One night, he is approached by a man who reminds him of a character in the book, someone who turns out to be the devil. He embarks on a journey that explores obsession, love, and the dark and dangerous places that mania can lead you to.

Now, you have the chance to join him in his journey as fiction and reality merge in this one-of-a-kind tour! Walk the streets of Barcelona and visit the sites where the events in the story took place, such as Santa Ana Street, the arch of the Theater, the King's Square, Las Ramblas, the Saint Felipe Neri square and Montcada street. Be whisked away to the fictional sites in the story like the Cemetery of Forgotten Books and the Hospice of Santa Lucia with the aid of a rich commentary by our tour guide.
