Stunning architecture, amazing history, and plenty of shopping (some more touristy than others). Should definitely be part your Barcelona visit!

With its iconic, old-Europe streets and alleys, this
picturesque neighbourhood is the very heart of

with a vibrant modern-day culture of artisan shops and
authentic culinary experiences. Avid explorers will be
thrilled to discover quaint terraces and plazas
brought to life by the many small bars and local
