Points of interest

  • Gothic Quarter:
    Immerse yourself in the past of Barcelona and wander through the narrow streets and squares of the mazy Gothic Quarter of Barcelona Old Town. Have a look to the Roman remains still visible in any corner of what was used to be a Roman village. In medieval ages, this small village grew in what is nowadays known as the Gothic quarter thanks to its great medieval and gothic architecture. Get lost in these alleys full of history and legends. This blend engenders a sparkling ambience that brings people from all around the world to visit this well known part of the city.

  • Las Ramblas:
    Have a walk on the lively Ramblas, probably the most emblematic avenue of Barcelona, full of bars, restaurants and street artists. The boulevard in medieval times was a small sandy river used as a natural defense at the very limit of the old city walls and nowadays is one of the most lively spots of the city.

  • Mercat de la Boquería:
    Enjoy the walk on the Rambla and enter the Boqueria market full of life, colors and elegant architecture. Take the chance to look around and taste a fresh fruit juice or to eat something on the way. Feel the gastronomic traditions of the Catalan people through the colorful and exuberant posts, or learn where the worldwide famous Iberian cured ham comes from.

  • Plaça Reial:
    Get to know Plaça Reial and its Napoleonic architecture, frequented by artists, bohemians and travelers enjoying some rest in one of the many terraces of the square. This big, open space became an indispensable meeting point in the middle of the Gothic Quarter and its narrow streets. Furnished with the elegant fountain de Tres Gracias and beautiful lanterns designed by a very young Gaudí on his first public assignment. With its gigantic royal palm trees, you can’t miss this sparkling and graceful square of Barcelona Old Town.

  • Barcelona Catedral:
    Pass by and admire the Barcelona Cathedral, known for its gargoyle sculptures at the top of the towers. Get impressed by this legendary building, known as one of the most outstanding Cathedrals of Europe, complemented by an interior space, very bright patio and towering columns. The Cathedral is devoted to a young virgin Saint named Eulalia and is seat of the archbishopric of the city.

  • El Born:
    El Born is maybe one of the few labyrinths in which you would not mind to get lost. Breathe in the unique atmosphere of this neighborhood, known for its fusion of old and new buildings. Stroll through very trendy squares where young and old love to be, and enjoy historical and cultural attractions such as the popular Basilica of Santa Maria del Mar or Palau de la Música Catalana.

Admire the architecture and monumental buildings of the Gothic Quarter, including the 14th-century Plaça del Rei.
Learn about the city's Christian side at the Barcelona Cathedral and Santa Maria del Mar, an outstanding example of Catalan Gothic architecture.
