One of my favourite parts of the city centre was around the Barri Gotic, or Gothic Quarter, located just to the east side of Las Ramblas. Its a maze of little back streets and gothic and neo gothic architecture. Definitely worth a stroll round, although be sure to take a map with you as it would be easy to get disoriented around here. I ended up here every day of my stay in Barca, at one point or another. The main picture here is of the Bridge of Sighs, a copy of the one in Venice. Although it looks gothic in style it was actually only built in about the 1920s when that style became popular again and this area went under some extenisive restorations. It still looks cool though!

Directions: The Bridge of Sighs is on carrer del Bisbe, just off Placa Nova
