We saw the Barri Gotic with a guided tour, and it was lovely and fascinating. There are several worthwhile museums here, as well as the Palau de la Musica, the ornate concert hall. Come here to absorb the real cultures of Barcelona.

Plenty to see, and your eye will appreciate it. There are a lot of historic sights you can enjoy and learn about. There are also some restaurants and ice cream bars around in case you would need a pause to re-energize.

Don't forget to look all around you especially upwards there is so much to see. The old architecture is amazing so many gargoules, beautiful doors, windows and varieties of brickwork; a real step back in time.

Great quarter to wander and wonder about the long history of this place. We saw it after dark and enjoyed the street opera singers.

The narrow streets are a dead give away. The main Catholic Cathedral is in the middle of it all and the border is indeed Las Ramblas.

Just look for the architecture and narrow alleys. The Jaume I Metro station leads dissected into the Gothic Quarter
