    The old city of Barcelona (or Ciutat Vella) is the historic center of the city. The heart of it is the Gothic Quarter (Barri Gotic) and it encompasses most of the major attractions in Barcelona. It is where you'd want to spend most of your time, if you're on a short trip and hope to see as much as possible.

    Definitely a highlight during my stay in Barcelona. I love getting lost in endless small alleys and street corners. It's the best way of finding new, exciting and beautiful places you never could have found on google. Often there are hidden treasures if you give yourself some time to stroll around. I've found countless unique chapels, local food markets and squares through my walks.

    This is the oldest district in Barcelona and is formed by the Gothic Quarter, La Ribera, La Rambla and El Raval neighborhoods. The area is famous for its numerous historic monuments, narrow streets and somewhat bohemian atmosphere. There are plenty of antique shops, bookshops, and restaurants to explore. It is noteworthy.

    Nice to walk around, explore the various shops and restaurants and look at the architecture near the Gothic district. Great shopping and lots of little nooks and crannies to explore in its multitude of cultural history

    Один из моих любимых городов! Красота такая, что просто захватывает дух! В городе работает один из лучших туристических автобусов. Билет действителен 2 дня. Предоставляет скидки на вход в большинство городских музеев. Есть отличное аудиосопровождение на русском.

    Everything Barcelona is worth the trip! Old City transports you back in time and lets you savor the magic of what was and is all at the same time. I love the architecture here and how it almost forces you to touch the buildings to make sure they're real.
