We stayed in the Gothic Quarter, and walked until I had blisters! The food was plentiful, from simple moderately priced tapas to more expensive restaurant fare. There were many shops and the morning market was out of this world. We just bought our breakfast as we walked.

There are beautiful landmarks and architecture that is worth your attention when in Barcelona in this Gothic Quarter. Take a walking tour with any private or group of your choice to get a better understanding of the stories behind all the buildings and cafes.

Lovely for a stroll, really beautiful and well preserved. Thouroughly enjoyed wondering through the narrow streets finding a couple of friendly taverns at reasonable prices.

The Cuitat Vella/Barri Gotic needs to have plenty of time put aside to explore. You could spend at least half a day wandering around the old streets and alleyways and never end up back on La Rambla. It is a safe area for tourists by day and night with a bustling central area and then quieter streets on the periphery.... More

Walking the Gothic Quarter was like traveling back in time. Unreal. Definitely a not-to-be-missed activity in Barcelona, just simply walking through the alley-like streets fills your soul.

Many tourists around, very beautiful structure, which slightly reminds Milan Cathedral. Around the large square. Beautiful place.

Definitely plan your time in Barcelona to spend at least half a day here. The architecture is great and the shopping is too. Be aware of siesta time, as shops are mostly closed. It is just off the Rambla and there is a lot to see.

The Gothic quarter is an absolute must when visiting Barcelona. Steeped in history the maze of cobbled streets throw up a new church, architecture, Grand square, street market, church. There are dozens of shops tucked away in the back streets amongst some of the quirkiest and nicest restaurants and cafes in Barcelona. Photo opportunities are everywhere day and night! Churros...

The narrow cobbled streets and alleyways have great scenery by day and axciting shops and bars by night. The squares are full of life (and buskers, bubble blowers and hawkers).

I love barcalona. This area is well worth a visit. It's a little like camden-ish. We found a vegan deli and resteraunt. The buildings are unique and gothic is definitely a good description of the area.
