Gothic Quarter is all about walking around and you'll find tons of little awesome places to eat tapas, wine, patatas bravas, jamon de pata negra. I recommend to taste the Vermut ;)

To visit Barcelona Gothic Quarters is like walking into the Medival times. The best is to walk and get lost through its streets and plazas. Unfortunately, the tourist tours, and new stores have changed some of the feel. But still worth it!

Be aware of pickpockets! They are thousands in Gothic. To fall in love with this place you should take a night walk. It's not more dangerous than on a daytime. But you'll be able to enjoy this area

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.

Just look for the architecture and narrow alleys. The Jaume I Metro station leads dissected into the Gothic Quarter
