This was actually our second visit to the Gothic Quarter and it was very close to our hotel on Las Ramblas. There are interesting, narrow winding streets with shops, cafes, etc. The centerpoint of the Barri Gotic is the beautiful Catedral de la Seu which represents one of the finest examples of Catalan Gothic architecture in the Region.

Of all the neighborhoods of Barcelona, I liked this the best. It´s a welter of little byways that one can get lost in, happily lost. The eateries are so much better than those found on La Rambla, and so are the shops.

touristy & usually crowded. They warn about pickpockets... Just be observant & careful. Loads of stores ( if that's your thing) between the sights.

We spent some time wandering through the Gothic Quarter and enjoyed it, especially remnants of the the old Roman gate and aqueduct, an overpass of a narrow street reminiscent of Venice's Bridge of Sighs, and the area adjacent to the Cathedral.

I love the Gothic Quarter in Barcelona. It's winding, narrow streets are full of life, shops, bars, cafes and restaurants to discover. Try going off the beaten track a bit and see what you find.

More shops and boutiques than you can shake a stick at. Very busy on Saturday/Sunday. Quaint, winding streets with plenty of bars and restaurants. Drinking fountains regularly provided for free refreshment. Look for interesting architecture above street level too - that's where most highlights can be found.

It is a nice place to visit and also go to the street shops. A visit here will help you enjoy the old city and its buildings. Many a surprise tucked away!
