Barri Gòtic / Gothic Quarter


Barcelona’s oldest neighbourhood, the Gothic Quarter. But not every stone origniates from mediaeval times. In the Middle Ages there was a citywall where you nowadays find the strolling promenade Las Rambles – but the smell was quite different, and not in a positive way. The cathedral and the Plaça del Rei tell of greatness and glory of the then superpower of the Mediterranean: Catalonia. You’ll find the narrowest alleys in the Jewish Quarter. Walk in Pablo Picasso’s footsteps, who lived in Barcelona as a young man. You also see filming spots of the literature adaptation “Perfume. Story of a Murderer”.

Discover e.g. Plaça Reial, Santa María del Pi, Catedral, Plaça del Rei, Plaça Sant Jaume, El Call (The Jewish Quarter), Carrer d’Avinyó, Plaça George Orwell, Plaça Mercè

Ideal for guided tours by foot and Sightjogging. It’s highly recommended to start the sporty sightsseing tour in the early morning. Bike tours should be avoided in the narrow and winding lanes, nevertheless some sights are easily accessible by bike as well.
