Carrer Montcada is situated in La Ribera from Placeta d'En Marcus in northwest to Placeta de Montcada in southeast.
Carrer Montcada is a must, when you are walking around in La Ribera.
It is a cosy an idyllic road.
Carrer Montcada is a pedestrian way with none or very few cars.
In some places the road are very narrow.

This is a charming street that runs along the Picasso Museum and ends at the back of the Basilica de Santa Maria del Mar. If you are super short on time in Barcelona and do not have the luxury to explore the vast Gothic Quarter, this one street, paired with the Picasso Museum which is housed in medieval constructs itself and Santa Maria del Mar, might give you a sense of seeing Barcelona’s well-preserved medieval ambience. The street was established in the 12th century, using the same path as the Roman access route between the port and the city gates. The peak of palace-building along the street was in the 13th and 14th centuries with nearly constant renovations and preservation projects onwards through time. By 1947, the street was declared an artistic-historical heritage site and the Picasso Museum was established in the 1960s. If you decide to visit the museum, you might book in advance to skip the line. And, while you wait for your timed reservations, there are plenty of small shops to visit on the street for quick souvenirs, as well as some decent ice cream shops!

A very old narrow street, which history goes back to the 12th century, with many fine palaces, nice windows and balconies and a lot of details you can admire. It is truly an atmospheric street with a scent of medieval life.

We went to see the Museum of World Cultures and the Museo Europeo de Arte Moderno, which are adjacent to the Picasso Museum. This area has very narrow streets but is quite interesting, and it has some very good stores.

Carrer Montcada is one of the best known gothic streets in Barcelona, narrow and framed by two lines of nobiliar palaces built in XIII-XVI century. I can remember Palau Dalmases, where actually you can see flamenco shows every day, with its wonderful patio, Palau Cervellò and Palau del Marques de Lliò, that hosts the Museum of the Cultures of Mon, very interesting. Inside the Berenguer Palace there's the Picasso Museum. You have to walk along Carrer Montcada if you're visiting the Gothic Barrio!
