Wonder around the gothic quarter and appreciate a different era in Barcelona. From the cathedral which is amazing, to Picasso, to the bridge on Carrer del Bisbe. Take it all in. A spectacular neighborhood to go explore!

If you're in Barcelona, this is a must-see. Beautiful architecture and interesting history. We did a walking tour with Barcelona Turisme and found it interesting and worth the time.

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

You can get a map in any hotel, but basically walk down last ramblas and go down any side street on the right and you will come to it.

Oh yes, there are many shops open late. There are a great deal of small supermarkets where you can buy basic provisions. We walked to a Carrefour store which had a great selection, suggest earlier in the day to avoid the... More
