Neighbourhood: Barrio Gòtico (Barri Gòtic)
With its iconic, old-Europe streets and alleys, this picturesque neighbourhood is the very heart of Barcelona. It blends historic artifacts from its days under Roman dominion up through the Spanish Civil War with a vibrant modern-day culture of artisan shops and authentic culinary experiences. Avid explorers will be thrilled to discover quaint terraces and plazas brought to life by the many small bars and local musicians lasting late into the night. Fashionistas will be drawn to Portal de L’Angel, which is lined with well-known brand names and smaller boutique stands.

Perfect place to walk thru little streets, experience roman times and see new shops. The square is filled with people taking photos and enjoying the outside. The Cathedral is a wonderful very old church. Was kind of pricey at 9 Euros to get in. I did enjoy the beauty and the solitude.

The Gothic Quarter or Barrio Gotico is actually the oldest quarter of Barcelona city. It is sometimes also called the “medieval city of Barcelona”. It has narrow medieval streets filled with trendy bars, old book shops, clubs, and Catalonian-style restaurants. The area is close to the La Rambla in the southwest and Plaza de Catalunya in the northwest. You can find lots of beautiful old churches, plazas, food places, and museums there. It is a great attraction for photographers to catch their dreamy shots here. As the streets are quite narrow, it’s best to just go on a walk through them and enjoy.

If you have very limited time and have to choose only a few things to visit, go straight to the Gothic Quarter.

Beautiful, endless maze of little streets!
One can happily wander here all day exploring hidden plazas, churches, boutiques, art galleries, jazz clubs, museums such as the MEAM, the PICASSO, the ETNOLOGIA, or the MOCO.
Pure Pleasure!

This is a place you just wander to see all the shops, cafes, and old streets. We really enjoyed "getting lost" in this section of Barcelona.

There are a few cathedrals to look at and plenty of shops and restaurants hidden away on small streets throughout this area of Barcelona. Nice place to spend some time exploring.
