My husband and I love Barcelona and are huge fans of Carlos Ruiz Zafon's novel "The Shadow of the Wind." We are looking into taking a walking tour based on the book when we're there in September. Has anyone done such a tour? Any recommendations or information?

Recommendation: If you're going to Barcelona or already have been there, you will really enjoy "The Shadow of the Wind"--captures the soul of Barcelona.

I am heading to Barcelona in April 2011. Now I will have to read the book. The ship (MSC Fantasia) is only ported from 1pm-6pm so it will be a really really short stay. Maybe this will give me some ideas.

If you have any ideas of what to do in 5 hrs, they would be appreciated.
