El Barri Gòtic, Barcelona

4.7
Must see · Neighborhood · Other
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.

  • The views were lovely, there are some very lovey businesses close by also! If you like pizza, visit De Nanni Pizzeria which is in the centre of the gothic quarter  more »
  • I definitely recommend it is magical and mystical worth the visit only issue is one must be very careful during the evening due to rogues hooligans trying to prey on tourist and non locals  more »
