    Explore Getsemani

    This 'tour' does not attempt to hide the changes taking place in this fiercely traditional barrio, far from it, the experience is designed to help visitors connect with the local population, understand what makes the barrio so special and engage with the people doing their bit to ensure that it preserves its particular charm.

    Filled with vivacious and idiosyncratic characters like El Zanahoriazo, the charismatic vendor selling carrot juice, the street legends that play ludo like their lives depend on it and the carpenters and tradesmen staying true to the district’s working class roots.
