A As I walked through Gothic quarters it occurred that as big as the outside road maps show you, it's fairly small in quarters. The trip to the Gothic quarters however is a fairly nice walk getting there with many shops to see.

It's a small area, so it doesn't take much time to walk around. Ten minutes is enough. There are some museums in this area, but the admission prices are high. There are many shops and restaurants around this area.

There is no real way to plan this part of the city. Just enjoy what each little turn presents, stop and listen to musicians, singers, grab a bite to eat and spend time browsing the stores. Don't forget all of the amazing architecture!!

There is so much history in these little narrow streets. It's worth wandering and just getting lost and letting the whole gothic 13c atmosphere wash over you.

I loved the Gothic quarter. I found the little crooked streets right around the old church so cute. We easily got off on a metro stop on La Rambla and headed into the neighborhood. My favorite part was all the little things to discover back here. While we wwere there they had a little Christmas market set up. There's also... More
