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

We stayed in the Gothic Quarter and probably didn't see it all over the 3 days. There are lots of different ways to walk around with surprise cafe's, squares and churches around each corner. It is quite sheltered if you want to get out of the sun.

The gothic quarter is an awesome place to walk around in the evening. Tons of great restaurant/tapas options and gelato all over the place. There are lots of local musicians playing in the streets, making it a great atmosphere. On Sundays, the shopping is mostly closed except for a few select places.

I love the spirit of the Gothic quarter in Barcelona with its narrow streets and beautiful architecture. A lot of small shops, cafés and restaurants. I really like it!
