“The Charming Center of old Barcelona”
Reviewed October 17, 2013

Obviously with the Cathedral and several other highlighted places to see here, the Barri Gotic is a must-see part of any trip to Barcelona. But a friend, Jim Utz, recommended the area by saying, "You can get lost there...in a good way." And he was right. You'll never stay lost for long, and the warren of tiny streets features one surprise after another. Good places to eat, to shop, to relax, and then of course there is Cathedral Square -- I had the great good luck to come upon it just as the sardana was being danced -- this slow, circular dance (a bit Zorba-the-greek-ish) is something tourists love to see, and for some, to participate in, but it's a dance of, by and for the Catalan people. It has a social aspect as it brings them together, and a political one, as it unites them in deeper ways. Yes, there are more than a fair share of tourist shops, but it remains one of my favorite parts of a great city! Oh, and don't be afraid to get a bit lost...it's the best way to get to know a new city.

“Walk and see Barcelona at the best”
Reviewed October 17, 2013

The Barri Gotic is a place to walk and walk and walk just to see and appreciate the architecture, the people, the restaurants. Don't miss large streets. Barcelona is a very "handicapped friendly". I think that the Barri Gotic is the "sense" of Barcelona.

“Interesting”
Reviewed October 17, 2013

Didn't see the whole thing, but there's a wide range of businesses on the streets. Definitely worth a look if you're in the city.
