Inside El Barrio Gótico is hard not to find magic places every in every corner. But this square has something special. It's own history is amazing and you can see it in its walls and the buildings around. Is a small square full of energy....More
This is a small peaceful square, a little out of the way in the old city of Barcelona. There is a lovely old church and fountain. If you look at the stonework around the door to the church you will see the scars of bombs...More

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.

musicians lasting late into the night. Fashionistas will be drawn to Portal de L’Angel, which is lined with well-known brand names and smaller boutique stands.
