Barri Gotico

Barri Gotico: Barri Gotic
Take a step back in time to medieval europe. You really get a feel of what it must have been like, as you walk around the maze of twisting, narrow streets. You will come across Cathedrals, churches, town squares and excellent small shops and cafes.

The highlights include the Catedral, Barcelona's great cathedral that dates back to the 14th century and has been constantly updated over the centuries with impressive additions such as the late 19th century facade. The square in front of the cathedral (placa de la seu) is certainly worth a stop for a coffee or tapas and sit and wonder at that facade.

Along the beautiful C. del Bisbe Irurita you pass the entrance to the cathedral and end up in the magnificent square, Placa Sant Jaume, which is the historical and political heart of the city. There are 2 stunning buildings that face each other, the Ajuntament and the Palau de la Generalitat.

As you travel west along C. de Ferran and down Ptge. Madoz you enter the beautiful Place Reial with its stunning architecture. There are several good restaurants and nightclubs here.
My advice, if I may, is to just find a street and continue to wind your way round. Each street seems to have it's own atmosphere and sights.
