Sometimes the power of words captivates us. In moments of love, we rise; In times of heartbreak, we suffer. And when reality becomes overwhelming, we seek refuge in literature. «I remember that dawn when my father took me for the first time to the Cemetery of Forgotten Books. It was the summer of 1945, and Barcelona lay under an ashen sky, while the burning sun poured over the Rambla de Santa Mónica…”

When Daniel Sempere discovers this magical place, his life—and that of those around him—is irrevocably transformed. The publication in 2001 of "The Shadow of the Wind" by Carlos Ruiz Zafón marked a literary milestone that still reverberates. We will immerse ourselves in this literary experience in the heart of Barcelona, starting at the emblematic number 9 of Rambla de Santa Mónica.

Is the Cemetery of Forgotten Books real? During our tour of the Barcelona of "The Shadow of the Wind", we will discover that imagination sometimes surpasses reality. We will explore Plaza Real, Calle del Call and Calle de Santa Ana, questioning whether places like Els Cuatre Gats and the Sempere e Hijos bookstore are mere figments of Zafón's imagination.

We will continue our walk in front of the majestic Santa María del Mar and visiting Montcada Street, the Santa Lucía asylum and Els Quatre Gats, other evocative settings from the novel. Finally, we will stop next to the Ateneo Barcelonés, where we will relive the adventures and misadventures of the unforgettable characters from "The Shadow of the Wind."
