The area
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.

A touch of the past.

I believe this is the best place to stay. I stayed at the Hotel Colon , opposite the cathedral. It is close to everything and an experience walking history. Cannot be beat.

Bit of a mess
Oct 2021
A lovely city somewhat spoilt by mess and graffiti almost everywhere. Bikes , electric scooters and motor scooters are everywhere , take your chances as there are no rules.
Once you've done Gaudi & the Sagrada F. then....shopping?eating?
I'm not going back.

The soul of Catalonia is definitely located here! A very atmospheric district of Barcelona. Narrow streets, lights, beautiful architecture are perfect for an evening walk!

Back in time
Sep 2021 • Family
If you ever wanted to know what it’s like to go back in time. Here’s your answer. Okay, you’ve got to ignore the tourists. And the hawkers. And the pickpockets. And the bric-à-brac stores. But there’s magic in those old walls and stories from long ago to be told. Arrive in the morning or flaneur late at night and you might here those stories whispered back at you.

Must Visit when in Barcelona
Sep 2021
Wear comfortable shoes since the Gothic Quarter is best seen while walking. Impressive building, arches, and stores. Busy tourist area.

The Gothic quarter is such a unique place in Barcelona! From the churches to the buildings to the alley ways! I would highly recommend going through the gothic quarter to get a feel what it was like back in the Roman era! Again there are plenty of places to eat, shop and get a drink; so plan to stay for a few hours to just absorb all the amazing structures and atmosphere!

Take your time to go for a stroll

An old district with nice boutique shops that you won't usually find anywhere else in Barcelona. You can reach it walking from Placa Catalunya through Avinguda del Portal de l'Àngel (the street with so many stores lined up on both sides). There you can see Basilica de Santa Maria del Mar.
