We walked all over the area and enjoyed the unique buildings from top to bottom. Could take 1000's of photos. The restaurants are a bit overpriced so suggest to do research on tripadvisor before wasting time and money going to any. Also watch your belongings as we were witness to 2 pick-pocketing.

Every great city almost certainly has to have a great cathedral...and Barcelona's is no exception...it has to be seen to be believed...similar in scale and mass to that in Palma, the contrast from the bustling city to the quite solitude, the cool interiors, the hidden catacombs and just incredible splendour, make it a journey worth taking...if to simply get out...

This quarter is definitely worth seeing and it is hard to avoid indeed, as it is very large. However, it is not the absolute highlight in Barcelona: the absolute highlights are the Miro Museum and Sagrada Familia.

Great place to walk through--architecture, historical monuments (eternal flame), Cathedral (Catedral Santa Maria del Mar), museums (Picasso, Chocolate, etc), restaurants (Los Caracoles!), shops, street art, etc. Ramble around and discover a new treasure or ten.

Beautiful place to visit in one of those rare occasions in which winter is hard and it actually snows in Barcelona so that there's no one around. In any other occasion (unless you wake up really early) you're bound to be trapped among thousands of other tourists all willing to enjoy the beautiful city and ruining the whole experience by...

Well worth a walk through this area to see the ornate architecture. We got there by hoho bus, but one can catch the metro easily.

Neighborhood Profile
Barrio Gotico (Barri Gotic)
With its iconic, old-Europe streets and alleys, this picturesque neighborhood is the very heart of Barcelona. It blends historic artifacts from its days under Roman dominion up through the Spanish Civil War with a vibrant modern-day culture of artisan shops and authentic culinary experiences. Avid explorers will be thrilled to discover quaint terraces and plazas brought to life by the many small bars and local musicians lasting late into the night. Fashionistas will be drawn to Portal de L’Angel, which is lined with well-known brand names and smaller boutique stands.
