In the heart of the Born, the Tunnel of Terror

En el corazón del Born, el Túnel del Terror

The Nightmare Horror Museum or Túnel del Terror, is a terrifying and changing labyrinth that since the end of December last year opened its doors in the Born in Barcelona.

It is the only terrifying attraction in the heart of Barcelona (Carrer de l’Argenteria, 57).

And from the entrance it begins to impress: it is a palace from the late fourteenth century with inlaid rosettes in the lobby from Santa Maria del Mar.

The director of the attraction, Eretz Miterani, says that finishing the project was a hard work of more than four years and in the middle of the pandemic.

It was only when they opened that they had to close due to the confinement and until the end of 2022 they were able to reopen the tunnel. However, Miterani does not qualify the attraction as a tunnel, it is a museum of horror.

Better known as the Tunnel of Terror

It is a 500 m2 labyrinth in total darkness that begins with a lobby designed by Mexican artist Javier Arango Garfios.

It integrates different terrifying elements where you can see from killer clowns to bone churches, skulls and huge animal bones.

Miterani says he has been in the business of scaring for more than twenty years, initially in Canada. He thinks that together with his team they have managed to take scares to another level.

All because it is an interactive and fun horror, which does not seek to make people suffer or leave traumatized.

It is not an extreme horror attraction. We only want our visitors to have a good time and have fun. Even children as young as 14 years old can enter. In addition, people who finish the tour leave laughing their heads off.

Another advantage is that when you enter, you can shout the magic safety word “nightmare” and you will immediately be guided to the sunlight. Once in the light and “for your embarrassment”, you will be part of the “chickens” counter at the exit.

Secret tunnels and other surprises

Right at the entrance door to the labyrinth you’d better take a breath and not be distressed. The initial warning is that the walls move and that there are secret tunnels that serve as a connection between the palace and the cathedral. Some of them are up to eight meters deep.

Of course there are no further details of what you will find there, it is only known that for 20 euros you can experience strong emotions, several paths of total darkness and about 30 minutes where you must be alert with your five senses.
