Discover Barcelona’s Gothic Quarter

barrio-goticoOne of the most sought after places for those visiting the city is the Gothic Quarter. And it is also one of the most special corners of Barcelona. Picturesque and full of contrasts, the Gothic Quarter is one of those places that you have to know, discover and enjoy.

Its narrow, somewhat narrow and dark streets give character and personality to the neighborhood. A neighborhood so rich that it is impossible to walk around looking only at the front, inevitably the view rises to appreciate the endless details of each of the buildings. The walk is pleasant because its streets are flat. And if you let yourself get lost, you will arrive at some square… The Plaza Real is one of the busiest and the Plaza Sant Jaume one of the most charming.

Its central location makes it perfect to get there in an easy way and it is also very convenient to visit it while doing some shopping or enjoying the gastronomy offered by the multitude of bars and restaurants nearby.
From Portal del Angel to Avinyo Street we find an endless number of charming and original stores and boutiques. And from there the promenade leads to Las Ramblas and arrives at Plaza de Cataluña or Port Vell and Maremagnum if you walk down.

Discovering the beautiful stores and establishments it hides, enjoying the architecture and the contrasts, getting lost in its charming streets… is an experience worth knowing and enjoying in first person. You will definitely want to come back. And if you live in Barcelona, it will become one of your favorite places in the city.
