Barri Gotic or the Gothic Quarter is a place located right in the heart of the Old City (Ciutat Vella) in Barcelona. The district is located between Las Ramblas to Via Laietana, and from the port of Barcelona to the Ronda de Sant Pere. Visitors can explore and wander down medieval alleyways and secluded squares full of plenty to see and do. With historical and beautiful buildings that make up the streets, you will get a taste of ancient architecture and the structures that used to serve as some of the most important in all of Barcelona.
The Gothic Quarter serves as a much more laid back destination for those who want to possibly get away from all of the hustle and bustle of Las Ramblas and explore a much quieter area of Barcelona. Visit Placa Sant Jaume and its two government buildings, the neo-classical concealment of the Ajuntament and the Renaissance palace of the Generalitat. Wander by foot to the many museums, cathedral and shops that offer guests an up close and personal look at this unique area of Barcelona.
For those who want to explore by night and maybe grab a bite to eat, there are dozens of restaurants, cafes and tapas bars to choose from. The nightlife here is fantastic and allows for guests to let loose, drink, dance and mingle with both locals and tourists in the area.
