GOTHIC QUARTER

Port Vell

Completely redesigned for the 1992 Olympic Games, it is a favourite place for locals to stroll. It stretches from the Columbus monument at the end of La Rambla to the Barceloneta neighbourhood. At the start of the route, it is worth visiting the Drassanes Reials (the former Royal Barcelona Shipyard), which now houses Barcelona's Maritime Museum under its impressive arches. Walking along the Moll de la Fusta (Wooden Wharf), you can see the eye-catching sculpture by American pop artist Roy Lichtenstein and Mariscal's famous 'Gamba' (Shrimp). Today, this area of the port is mainly home to private yachts and, in its central part, the Barcelona Aquarium and the Maremàgnum shopping and leisure centre.

It is a pleasant 1.3 km long promenade that connects Plaça de Catalunya with Port Vell. Flowers, music, performances, mimes and terraces define Barcelona's most famous street.

Located on Las Ramblas, the Gran Teatre del Liceu has been graced by the world's greatest opera singers since 1847. It is considered one of the most prestigious opera houses in the world. A guided tour is a fantastic way to gain an in-depth understanding of the theatre and see all its beauty in detail. And, of course, catching one of the performances is a must.

GOTHIC QUARTER

Boqueria Market

Located midway along Las Ramblas, its gastronomic offerings are so tempting that you won't be able to resist trying some of the "gourmet" delicacies from its many stalls.

GOTHIC QUARTER

Gothic Quarter

The Gothic Quarter is one of the most charming areas to stroll around and enjoy the city. Be sure to visit Plaça de la Catedral, Carrer del Bisbe and Plaça Reial and sit on one of the bustling terraces.

GOTHIC QUARTER

Plaça Reial

It is one of the busiest and liveliest squares in Barcelona. Under its arcades you will find many restaurants, bars and some of the city's most popular night spots.

In the centre of the square is the Font de les Tres Gràcies (Fountain of the Three Graces), along with two lampposts designed by a young Antoni Gaudí, crowned by a winged helmet and a dragon. A number of royal palms decorate the area around them, giving it an exotic touch. The square is surrounded by a series of stately buildings, all of them uniform, with porticoes and terracotta decorations. In the past they housed important families from Barcelona, although today the luxurious character of the square has been replaced by a more bohemian atmosphere.

GOTHIC QUARTER

Plaza de San Felip Neri

Plaça de Sant Felip Neri is one of those hidden gems that rewards those who are lucky enough to find it. Presided over by an enchanting fountain and dominated by a Baroque church, it is a fascinating place where the stones themselves tell the story.


During the Civil War, several bombs were dropped on the city of Barcelona. One of them landed where the square stands today, killing 42 people, most of them children who had taken refuge in the church's basement. The surrounding houses were also completely destroyed. Adolf Florensa i Ferrer, the municipal architect in charge of the reconstruction project, decided to rebuild a square. The scars left by the bomb can still be seen on the façade of the church.

GOTHIC QUARTER

Barcelona Cathedral

It has been declared an Asset of Cultural Interest and a National Historic Monument.

Eight centuries of history are hidden within its stones, with an interior full of secrets to be discovered. Here you will find the relics of Saint Eulalia, patron saint of the city, as well as one of the most beautiful Gothic cloisters in Catalonia. Its interior is filled with tombs, altars and Marian invocations of more than 140 saints.

From its terraces you can enjoy a very special view of the historic centre of Barcelona. These are now open to the public and are suitable for everyone, as they can be reached by means of a lift.

GOTHIC QUARTER

Temple of Augustus

Dedicated to the imperial cult of Caesar Augustus, built in Barcino, a Roman colony that would eventually become the city of Barcelona.

In the late 19th century, three of its columns were found during the construction of the current headquarters of the Centre Excursionista de Catalunya. A fourth was on display in the Plaça del Rei and was later incorporated into the original ensemble.
