BCN Barrio Gotico is one of the best in Europe, with much to see and explore. Check out the Palau Reial Major and the Cathedral.

We loved this area of Barcelona. It was so fun to get lost in the streets and find all these little discoveries from great shops, great art and the beautiful Barcelona Cathedral! Very much worth it!

Runner Bean Tours, being promoted as free walking tours showed us the interesting nooks and crannies, houses, churches and explained the history of the Gothic area.

The cathedral here is very large and impressive with many side alters all elaborately decorated. The outside is impressive too even if crowded in by the area around it. The streets of the quarter are narrow with lots of small shops and small restaurants. The...More

The narrow streets are a dead give away. The main Catholic Cathedral is in the middle of it all and the border is indeed Las Ramblas.
