The area is a very pleasant area of narrow back streets and old buildings, mostly from the nineteenth century or earlier. We had booked into a hotel for a week on Ferran. This turns out to be one of the main tourist drags leading down to La Rambla. Apart from the inconvenience of the crowds, afternoon and evening, it meant... More

So much better for food than Las Ramblas area where you can be ripped off. As in all of Spain provision of toilets is a problem. Best et we found is to either stop for a drink... More

I rented a villa for a month in BCN - Just got home Friday. The Gotic Quarter is the most inspiring place I've ever lived. A stunning, charming neighborhood full of history and intrigue. FOR 30 days, we did not repeat a restaurant! Borne is my favorite neighborhood.

Amazing architecture all over. Look up and you will see more of it. Narrow streets, little plazas with terraces and friendly service everywhere. Just what you look for on a weekend out! Loads of restaurants and bars, in the evenings foreigners mix with locals. Great food, so a real treat. Find your way around and you will enjoy so much.... More

Love this area. Love to 'get lost'. Just wander around the narrow streets. Decide on any corner where to go. Look at all the beautiful street art.

Take some time to get lost in the maze of streets and shops in the gothic quarter - there are some unique places there including shops that just seem to sell scissors! Have a drink in one of the many squares - we liked the Placeta del Pi

Very pleasant wandering around on a sunny autumn afternoon. Get yourself lost in the little alley ways and lanes and streets. Stop for lunch and one of the many cafes.
