“Great experience.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2013

The Gothic quarter of Barcelona was a great experience. We walked the many streets, saw the Cathedral and old Jewish section. Had a great paella with noodles rather then rice. It was fun neighborhood to walk around or grab a gelato in.

“Fantastic”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2013

The gothic quater is unmissable is you like history. There are lots of small narrow alley ways, with tell imposing buildings running alongside. There are some brilliant independent shops, and always a bar or restaurant around the corner when you need to relax

“Step back in time”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2013

Just spend time wandering the gothic quarter getting lost and you will stumble across the most amazing alleyways and little shops. Found a little clock place with so many different types of clocks and mechanisms on them.
Also had an amazing hot chocolate and churro a in a quaint little cafe off the beaten track.
You could spend days wandering there.
