I enjoyed walking this quarter in the late evening. Couples were still strolling even smaller side streets, and (in July) there was an outdoor free film screening at one of the small squares, which I found very charming.

Great scenic neighborhood. Lots of eateries and cool streets. Definitely explore. Interiors of churches and plazas are so incredible. Full of history and remains of Roman ruins.

Always things to see. A fine hotel- Hotel Colon- is right across from the cathedral. The fun and delicious market and Los Ramblas are steps away. This area should be your start to a Barcelona visit.

Gothic Quarter is a very beautiful area with distinct architecture and shops. You must talk a walk there once at least. Many specialty shops, beautiful buildings, and little restaurants.

Found an apartment in the middle of Barrio Gotico. Although a little noisy, a great experience to walk around and discover each time a new corner full of history. My best stay in Barcelona

This neighborhood is a must see destination. First, there is the Museo De Picasso, which is simply amazing. We saw "Picasso's Kitchen" exhibit, which covered paintings and ceramics having to do with food, the kitchen and the scarcity and austerity of war-time Europe. The permanent...More

Walkable. Bear 3/4 right from the port. 15 mims - but uncertain inside, you will be walking for as long as it takes. Streets very narrow so best done on foot.
