Really lovely area of Barcelona. Great bars to watch the world go by. It has a great deal more character than many of the other districts.

beautiful place to sit and watch the world go by. Go to the local market if you can. Chocolates are to die for... Restaurants offer a variety and are inexpensive. Shops are fab

Very impress with the gothic style buildings made me feel like I was traveling back in time. The street performers was a plus they made the square come alive. The cathedral was stunning .

Nice shopping area. Not even nearly as crowded as the close by Rambla. Wonderful. You might also find some markets there.

We much preferred this area to La Ramblas- more authentic and interesting. Wandering through, you always find new sights, squares and places to stop and eat or drink.

Walking around this old area with it's narrow cobbled street is almost like stepping back in time but hidden in these streets are a myriad of shops that sell interesting & modern merchandise and terrific cafes & restaurants. Don't leave Barcelona without checking out the Gothic quarter

You'll be so glad you did. I could have wandered through the Barri Gotic for a couple of weeks. Every street offered something interesting. Restaurants, shops, people watching and more, the opportunities for exploring seemed endless. And the old cathedral was interesting as well. It's not difficult to see the old Roman city you're standing in.

What a fantastic area of the city - a stark contrast to the continuous blocks elsewhere! There's some lovely little cafes, along with squares that include churches, palaces, monuments and you can even find the Cathedral!
