Nice to go exploring between tall buildings and discovering cosy restaurants around each corner. Could feel a bit unsafe during nightime.

I loved the Gothic Quarter for its alleyways, lots of odd shops and churches tucked away, as well as discovering Roman columns! Also found the best little ice cream shop where I had a nutella and Ferrero ice cream!!

Its very nice to walk the narrow strets of barcelona. The best time to do it is in the afternoon, maybe you can also stop for some churros and hot chocolate somewhere.

The area is very nice with lots of cool shops, restaurants and buildings. The joy was spoiled when my wife's purse was stolen. Lots of my friends had the same experience in this area. So - BE CAREFUL!

The Gothic quarter in my opinion was the best part of Barcelona. Our hotel was in the Gothic quarter and I wouldn't have had it any other way. Go at night and try all the local tapas restaurants

There is so much fun to be had just wandering around the Gothic Quarter. Architecture, food, shopping, people watching or having a coffee. Make time for it.

Ok, I am no architect but this place exemplifies the city. I have been to Paris but neat and beautiful is this Catalan city and clean too. Beyond that, it's touristy with a few local brand shops but it's a nice place to chill out, walk around, have some tapas, try some Iberico ham, etc.

My wife and I stayed in the Gothic Quarter last week and wanted to make the most of our short two days there by taking a guided tour. After our great experience at the Dali museum in Figueres with guiding.es we decided to use them for our tour of the Gothic Quarter as well. We were incredibly satisfied with our... More

There are all kinds of architectural features to see, bulidings, small squares, narrow alley ways and shops of all kinds. It's all for free so you can't fail to enjoy. I f you cant... More
