Owner description: This fascinating area is steeped in history, with city hall located in the same spot where kings once reigned. You'll find narrow streets and squares here, with Gothic mansions, museums, historic churches, bars and restaurants. The Placa del Rei is reputedly the place where King Ferdinand and Queen Isabella welcomed Columbus after his voyage to America.

Very beautiful place to stroll about at day and in the evening. Lots of cafes & restaurants. Fascinating architecture - don't forget your camera!

Spent an afternoon strolling and photographing the old city. Besides the historic buildings I (probably shouldn't have) enjoyed the magnificent graffiti found in various locations.

The Spanish vs Catalan history is evident here as well as the bloody and ongoing history for independence. There is an amazing butcher near the church that has sausage with foie gras - just delicious!
