Owner description: This fascinating area is steeped in history, with city hall located in the same spot where kings once reigned. You'll find narrow streets and squares here, with Gothic mansions, museums, historic churches, bars and restaurants. The Placa del Rei is reputedly the place where King Ferdinand and Queen Isabella welcomed Columbus after his voyage to America.

Narrow streets, shops, bars, shops, restaurants, shops. Getting lost almost compulsory. What's not to like?

Strictly speaking the Old City is divided into four quarters. Barceloneta, Barri Gotic, La Ribera, El Laval.

Running down the centre of the old town is Les Rambles that stretches from Plaça Catalunya to the Mediterranean Sea.

A good way to explore the old town is to seek out the small side streets and alleyways, admire the gothic buildings and other buildings that stretch from Plaça Catalunya to the Mediterranean Sea. Be wary of pick pockets that target tourists.

Located to the left of the (in)famous Las Ramblas (when walking towards the harbeour) this area of old Barcelona, with its narrow streets offer an enormous variety of small restaurants, boutiques and old shops worthwhile visiting.

Nice place to pass the time and explore the history of Barcelona. Go with all family and go through the streets.

We were in Barcelona for 4 days. In that time, a gold necklace was ripped off my neck in the Old City and 2 men attempted to steal my husband's briefcase out of the car. My husband was going to park the car and one man opened his door to distract him while another man opened the passenger side door and took his briefcase. Fortunately, the doorman of the hotel saw what was happening and slammed the car door and the man dropped the bag. Two horrible events in a beautiful city.
