Spent days walking the alleys of the Gothic Quarter. It seems you never know where you are but never really lost. Every alley provides new opportunities for restaurants, small bars, churches (there are a lot) and coffee shops. Like stepping back in time.

My mother and I visited Barcelona, and we spent a few hours getting lost in Barri Gotic! This neighborhood is absolutely beautiful, great for photos, and simply experiencing the not so touristy parts of Barcelona!

This is certainly the touristy section of Barcelona, but also very nice to wander. Took a cooking class near Plaza Reial and had dinner there that same evening. I also recommend taking a bike tour. You can see much more of this section of the city and can go where buses cannot. Certainly recommend spending some time in this section... More

Probably the best area of Barcelona to get a real feel of he city. Plenty of food and shopping and felt safe, though Barcelona is known for pick pockets.

Hours can be lost simply walking and exploring the district, taking in the sights and pausing to stop and sample the local beer and tapas.

Beautiful and atmospheric. The building is a credit to the stone masons and designer. What an awesome building. Beware the pick pockets outside. Someone had their wallet stole whilst watching a street artist !!!

This is a really lovely area for wandering. It is quite atmospheric and has lots of little streets you can loose yourself in, without every truly being lost. There are lots of little shops, cafes and bars to stop for a rest too.
