Steeped in history and beautiful buildings, lovely to walk around and soak up the atmosphere! Plenty of cafes and bars to rest and grab a refreshing drink.

This area feels like one big maze of small streets. Very nice to wander around, specially at night. Just watch out for the ripp-offs at some restaurants. They shameless double prices right in front of you...

Despite being in BCN during winter, a walk through the Gothic Quarter was a wonderful experience. It probably would have been nicer with a docent guide, but nonetheless an enjoyable experience to walk on your own. TIP: Be sure to check the Dali and Picasso museum nearby.

My favorite section of Barcelona. Very nice to stroll down the narrow roads, especially in the evening. Love Sensi Bistro Tapas and Zim in the Gothic Quarter.

Staying in the Gothic area of Barcelona is a delight with its little alleyways, quaint corners and little local shops and tapas bars. Far from the maddening crowds. Wonderful people. Apart from the Picasso museum, there are few attractions but the atmosphere is warm and splendid even in January.

Worth visiting. Barcelona cathedral is beautiful even just to walk past to see! It says online it's free but when I went, 4 days ago, it said €6 entry.

Every time I go I see something new. It was sad this time to see shops that have been in business for generations closing because of the change in laws regarding rent control. Many of them can't afford the new skyrocketed rates and are forced to close. We wandered down the Jewish section and found some amazing bead shops that... More
