The other reviews said just get lost and enjoy - that's exactly what we did and Barcelona is one of our favourite cities largely based on this. Beautiful hidden buildings to discover with plenty of delicious refreshments and bars along the way. Strolling bliss.

if you love walking around gobble stone street and old historical buildings this is a place to visit. Love stopping by many restuarants trying out tapas or stopping for drinks or small stores, boutiques and souvenir shops. Prices are decent as well.

A great area to wander around and get lost among the ancient, but incredibly well-preserved buildings. Winding streets full of shops and restaurants suddenly open to grand plazas, with fountains and restaurants. Reminiscent of streets in Venice, and St Marco.

The restaurants, the small shops, the street art, almost getting lost but ending up,as usual, on la ramble, the a must if you want to feel Barcelona. But don't hurry anywhere-enjoy Coffey or the local estera beer
