Gothic quarter have so many things to see and do. It's a must see place. Make sure to remember which streets you go because you can easily get lost and the streets looks almost the same.

Being the oldest part of the Barcelona, this place is just so much fun to walk in. You can just wander around this place for days. Try the local food, don't be afraid to buy stuff you don't know haha. I'm talking mostly about pies, empanadas and hot ice cream! In addition, don't forget to see the Barcelona Cathedral (my...

I went there but since I didnt have so much time I had to see all by myself really quick! It was awesome, I saw amazing buildings, I would love to see everything again, and it was free but im sure if you pay for a guide he/she would tell you good stories since I found very intersting buildings.

I'm from Panama, where we don't have a great representation of gothic architecture, so for me this was awesome, even if you know this kind of stuff you would be astonished.

There is so much to see in the Gothic Quarter. We could have spent two full days walking around. However our flight was delayed and we lost a full day in Barcelona. We just skimmed the surface of this area of Barcelona. Picasso museum, cathedral, shops, architecture, food history. All within walking distance. Guess we will have to go back.

So many shops, bars, restaurants to see. If you only have a day or two in town I would put this area on the hit list.
