Barri Gòtic – The Gothic Quarter

" Barri Gòtic is a neighborhood that is always full of life. I live here, just off the beautiful Plaça Reial, and I love it. "

Annebeth Vis, our local from time to momo Barcelona

Barri Gòtic is the oldest neighborhood in Barcelona, and the tourist hub of the city. Its medieval streets were built on remains from the Roman era. The area surrounding the Catedral de la Santa Creuis is also known as the Cathedral Quarter, because of the many churches and centuries-old buildings here. This is also the former Jewish district of El Call. Plaça de Sant Jaume, where the Catalan autonomous government and municipality reside, is Barcelona's political center. Plaça Reial—possibly the most beautiful square of the city—and its surrounding streets are a popular hangout for Barcelona's night owls.
