Gothic Quarter Barcelona is a testament to just how much diversity the city has to offer. There is a large number of great attractions and places to visit in Barcelona, but some travelers don’t make it to the Barcelona Gothic Area. That is truly a shame, as the neighborhood has so much history and beauty to offer.
What to see in the Barcelona Gothic Quarter? Part of what makes the Gothic Quarter (in Catalan "Barri Gòtic") so unique is that it is the center of what is the old city of Barcelona (Ciutat Vella). A trip to the Gothic Quarter might not exactly be like taking a time machine back a few centuries, but it will give you peek into the past. Many of the buildings in the area are impressive and date back to Medieval times.
In fact, some of the architecture in the area date back to the Roman Empire’s initial settlement of Barcelona. Venture to the right spots, such as the area around Avignuda de la Catedral and Carrer de la Palla in the south, and you’ll even find ancient Roman walls.
