A beautiful church in the south part of Gothic Quarter, so there is a small square in front, many restaurants/chocolate shops and very close to Picasso Museum.

We have always fancied visiting old churches, as it gives you a glimpse of the life way back when and another place to pray and thank God for allowing you to visit places like this. If you are like us, then you should take the...More

Worth a visit. This is less fancy than the other basilica or cathedral of the city, maybe that's why it feels more alive.

The architecture of the Gothic area of Barcelona is a very interesting piece of this city's heritage. There are a lot of details that will move you in how this came about. A true experience.

I like architecture. I will become a 5 star in something like this. But what I like is the care that you can see. The beauty and history in it is just moving.

El Born / La Ribera
The labyrinth that is El Born becomes most apparent
the moment you turn down one of its side streets. But
this is one of the few labyrinths you might actually
enjoy losing your way in. After all, there are few
places that live and breathe such exciting energy
regardless of the time of day. This neighborhood
seamlessly transcends the old and new parts of the
city, reflected in its vast array of restaurants

Did not do the rooftops of the cathedral or Santa Maria del Mar but I agree w/ the others, go to Museu Nacional d'Art de Catalunya on Montjuic - the front steps have the best view of Barcelona.
