Barcelona step by step: Gothic Quarter

barrio-gotico1-1

The Gothic Quarter is the city’s old town neighborhood and its narrow streets hide treasures that run from Roman times to the present day. The present administrative centre of Plaça Sant Jaume is also the geographical centre of Roman Barcelona; located right beside is the Call, the old jewish quarter. Apart from the Cathedral, you will find enchanting alleyways and medieval squares. Visitors can still lose themselves in its winding streets and soak up history at the Temple of Augustus or pop in to buy a straw hat at Manual Alpargatera. Portaferrissa and Portal de l’Àngel are open-air malls and Carrer Princesa is crammed with restaurants and odd shops such as Rey de la Magia. Stop off for a coffee at Els Quatre Gats, a legendary modernist meeting point for intellectuals, and have a good lunch for a reasonable price al Les Quinze Nits. Metro Catalunya and Liceu
