El Barri Gòtic, Barcelona

4.8
Known for its winding streets and hidden squares steeped in history, El Barri Gòtic is ideal for an historic walk followed by a rest at one of the many trendy bars or cafes. A trip through this colorful neighborhood is a trip through time, as this old city center is still largely intact, retaining much of its labyrinthine medieval street plan, with a multitude of small streets opening into bustling squares. Most of the quarter is closed to regular traffic, though service vehicles and taxis are allowed to pass through. Many of the landmark buildings located here date from the Middle Ages, with several sites harking back to the Roman times. El Cali, the medieval Jewish quarter, is also located within this area.

  • Great restaurants,bars and plenty of souvenir shops. Many Museums and cathedras to visit. Very narrow old, old streets.  more »
  • I totally recommend walking through this beautiful neighborhood. It is filled with space that will amaze you as you explore them. We arrived one day Sunday, so the visit was more entertaining, since the Catalan performing their typical dances "sardana" with a band in front of the cathedral were gathered. Do not take more than 3 hours travel! Go will not regret

  • Here you can feel the Spanish flair. All small streets that invite you to take a stroll. Many street parties in the district were held during my stay.
