"OLD CITY" Barri Gotic - Gothic Quarter Tip by Helga67

Barri Gotic - Gothic Quarter, Barcelona: 103 reviews and 217 photos


The Barri G˛tic contains a concentration of medieval Gothic buildings only a few blocks northeast of La Rambla. It's a maze of interconnecting dark streets linking with squares, and there are plenty of cafes and bars. Around the Catedral, one of Spain's greatest Gothic buildings, you can still see part of the ancient walls incorporated into later structures. The quarter is centred around the Plaša de Sant Jaume, a spacious square, the site of a busy market and one of the venues for the weekly dancing of the sardana. Two of the city's most significant buildings are here, the Ajuntament and the Palau de la Generalitat.
