Barcelona city walks

Emboldened by comments from John of CityHighlights, who was out on an in-town walk yesterday, I’m going to start offering Barcelona city walking tours via the website.
(John pointed out that Roman London also took shape on a modest hill between two streams–in Barcelona’s case, we’re talking the Rambla and the old Riera de Sant Joan, which flowed roughly along what’s now Laietana. Did the Romans have a secret master-plan?!)
