Barri Gòtic is among the fists choices tourists make when getting to Barcelona. This neighborhood is the cultural hub of the city, which makes it suitable for any type of traveler.
Its name comes from the fact that it was a Roman village and it has some remnants of that past. The mix of old and new brings people from all around the world to visit the Gothic Quarter.
Barri Gòtic has a lot of peaceful squares (plaças) for you to relax and enjoy the surroundings. Still, one of the main attractions here is the huge Cathedral with a stunning courtyard.
Let yourself amazed by the number of restaurants and bars, especially near Plaça Reial which is full day and night. Besides, being at night in the Gothic Quarter means being alive and have a lot of fun, and here you will most certainly find some place to have a drink or a dance.
If one of your pleasures is to go shopping when in holidays, the Gothic Quarter is a great choice. There is a commercial area from Calle Portal de L’Angel that goes to all the little boutiques on Calle Avinyo. The best way to see things better is walking, because the Gothic Quarter is perfect for an afternoon stroll.
Besides, you are here in the center of the city, which means that many of the city’s attractions are just a walk away.
