What is it?

Mystery City Games are a mix between a scavenger hunt,  escape room, and walking tour. It’s a bit like the Da Vinci Code or National Treasure – it’s about using clues hidden in the architecture of the city to solve a mystery. It’s an escape experience in Barcelona like no other and should definitely be included in your ’top 10 things to do in Barcelona’! 

How It Works:

  • You will meet the Game Master at our Secret Headquarters to pick up a backpack containing all of the materials that you need to play: treasure maps, boxes, locks, and beautiful tools!
  • Follow an ancient treasure map as you walk through Barcelona’s city center or old Gothic and Jewish quarter discovering must-see city sites and monuments such as Plaza Catalunya, Palau de la Musica, the Cathedral, Plaza del Rei, Alchemist’s House and much more!
  • Solve puzzles while exploring Barcelona’s top attractions and having fun with your friends or family on a holiday, bachelorette party, or weekend out. If you only have one day in Barcelona, this is the way to see it!
