My wife, two children and I visited Barcelona in December 2016 and January 2017. I think I walked around the Gothic Quarter at least 4 or 5 times. I never got tired of it and it was my favorite part of Barcelona. You can see sights like the Barcelona Cathedral, Santa Maria del Pi Church, Placa Reial, and many other... More

Even though it is still being built... it's breathtaking. We didn't queue to go inside but even so, it's an awesome sight.

I am in Barcelona and yesterday spent the day wandering around Barri Gótico and places around the area. Every little street is amazing, the local market, fashion design, the architecture, people... everything is very amazing, you must go, visit, get lost and find your way again. Loved it!

Walk around, see the unique architecture and read about the history of this neighborhood. I did the recommended Rick Steve's self guided walk and it was perfect. Barcelona is such a cool city to walk through so don't miss out on the gothic quarter.

this church is truly beautiful. it costs €7 to enter but is worth it. with the entrance fee you can take the lift on to the roof with great view of the city.

The Gothic quarter is a very beautiful area in Barcelona. Small streets with boutiques, museums, coffee shops and restaurants. The cathedral is special and surrounded by galleries. Don't miss it!

We spent the best part of the day just walking through the narrow streets and plazas to be footsore and exhausted by end of the day. Just loved the experience and had we more time would have made another visit as I know we only scraped the surface of it's delights. Cathedrals, shops, bars, restaurants and art installations are plenty... More

Take the free tour with Filipa! She was an amazing guide that walked us through the streets and history of the Gothic Quarter for a couple of hours. You can contribute if and whatever you like at the end. Meet just outside the metro station Jaume near the statue and get mesmerized in the area and the story!

This is the best area of Barcelona in my opinion. Just get lost in this area, walking aimlessly and i can assure you the sight that you get at every part of this area is amazing. last time, I stumble to a choir practicing Nessun Dorma in one of the alley way
