What better way to discover the hidden secrets of a city neighborhood than through the eyes of someone who has lived on the streets. Hidden City Tours has launched a project to allow visitors to Barcelona to view the city’s Barri Gotic historic district through the perspective of a homeless guide.

Company founder Lisa Grace decided to tap into the local expertise of the city’s homeless population to guide tourists and to simultaneously address Barcelona’s growing unemployment problem by creating jobs.
