During our most recent stay in Barcelona, we had been to visit Basilica de Santa Maria del Mar. After leaving the church we took our first walk along Carrer Montcada. This long narrow street dating back to the Medieval Period, is home to a number of buildings featuring some classic and unique architecture.
Among other significant buildings located here are the Picasso Museum, Palau de Dalmases and the Capella d’en Marcús.
We were surprised by how gracious this significant street is and we were happy that we had finally taken a stroll along it.
Well worth a visit!

This narrow pedestrian only street is a nice walk into history. It is filled with photo opportunities and it leads to other areas that contain other interesting things to see - churches etc.

People who live here are proud of their history and it shows in how they decorate their balconies for the people walking below, the upkeep of their buildings and their love of live music (you will often see talented buskers playing beautifully in this area).

A pretty medieval street. Connects the Santa Maria del Mar church with the Picasso Museum. There are many restaurants and cafes.

Montcada is full of surprises from tea shops to weird art to the nicest headshop in Barcelona, most people come to Montcada because of the Picasso Museum and the little shops but you must go to placeta de san marcus great restaurants there and Barcelona Legalize boutique hemp shop a must visit if you are in Barcelona

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.
