We stayed at the Hotel SUIZO ( recommenced) in the Gothic Quarter which made us central to all the beautiful laneway/ narrow and car free streets for shopping, restaurants/Tapas and amazing old buildings. It has great character and the locals were so friendly and helpful....More

Do join the local walking tours if you wan to know more about the histories. It is also fine if you choose to walk around the area on your own. Nice place and rich in history. Should visit!

I would recommend visiting here on a tour, that way you see what you need to see and learn about everything. Some of the back alleys didn't feel very safe to go alone.

Gothic Quarter is all about walking around and you'll find tons of little awesome places to eat tapas, wine, patatas bravas, jamon de pata negra. I recommend to taste the Vermut ;)

To visit Barcelona Gothic Quarters is like walking into the Medival times. The best is to walk and get lost through its streets and plazas. Unfortunately, the tourist tours, and new stores have changed some of the feel. But still worth it!

Barrio Gotico (Barri Gotic)
With its iconic, old-Europe streets and alleys, this
picturesque neighbourhood is the very heart of
Barcelona. It blends historic artifacts from its days
under Roman dominion up through the Spanish Civil War
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

The narrow streets are a dead give away. The main Catholic Cathedral is in the middle of it all and the border is indeed Las Ramblas.

Just look for the architecture and narrow alleys. The Jaume I Metro station leads dissected into the Gothic Quarter
