The Barri Gotic (Gothic Quarter) is a fantastic area to spend the day or if you have less time the afternoon walking around to absorb the culture, history and ambiance of Barcelona. The area is charming and is filled with old world architecture including the old style gas lamps, alley ways, building facads, etc., and you can imagine what life must have been during the height of its period. The first time I experienced this area was back in 1975 and have been back four more times. Many shops and cafes have popped up in the Quarter but the architecture and charm still remain. The area is vibrant and all ages will enjoy their time spent here.
The area is very busy most times of the day so watch your pockets and purses.
