If you like to wander, this is the area to do it! There are so many nooks and crannies to explore and you never know what you will find! Great place to take photos!

This section of Barcelona is a must - the architecture is fantastic and there are plenty of side streets for shops, restaurants and bars. Try and cover up though shoulders and knees are not appreciated in the cathedral...!!!

Just a few strides from the hotel. What an amazing place and some very interesting architecture. Lots of lovely Tapas bars and beautiful Boutiques hidden away down the side streets.
