Description

How does it work?

  • Sign up and pay for the trail across Barcelona’s Old City online. You will receive a text message with your unique link within 1 hour from completing the payment.
  • Start in front of the fountain on Plaça Reial between 10:00-17:00 every day – except Monday – by opening the link, that you received upon purchase, in your browser on your phone. Simply press the Start button to begin playing.
  • Solve 11 clues by typing the answers in the text box and hit the ‘I’ve got it!’ button to submit your answer.
  • Enjoy discovering the city as each correct answer takes you to your next location within walking distance.
  • The answers to some clues are hidden inside places and spaces we like. We don’t take any commission for bringing you there – we simply think they add something extra to your experience.
  • Keep in mind that most answers are made up of one word only or a number – there are a few exceptions. 
  • Ask for a hint, by clicking the ‘I need help’ button, if you need a little help solving a clue. HINTS will get you nearer to the location where you need to search for the answer to your clue.
  • Please note there’s only one HINT per clue. Each HINT you ask for will add 10mins ‘penalty time’ to your overall time.
  • In case you’d like to skip a clue without solving it and want to receive the next one, press the ‘Skip this clue’ button. We recommend asking for a HINT before you skip a clue to make sure you are near the right spot to continue from.
  • Skipping a clue adds 20mins ‘penalty time’ to your overall time. 
  • You can always close and reopen your browser – and using your same unique link, you can continue playing where you left off.
