Where is Barri Gotic?
The Barri Gotic is a part of the Ciutat Vella (old town), along with La Ribera, La Raval and Barceloneta.
Walking down Las Ramblas from Placa Catalunya, the Barri Gotic, or Gothic Quarter, is on your left-hand side.
What is in the Barri Gotic?The main sights in the Barri Gotic are the cathedral and Placa Reail.
But the real beauty of the Gothic Quarter is its interesting little streets and alleyways. There are so many little streets to wander around, I challenge anyone to take the same route twice (if you do manage to follow the same route twice, you're not being adventurous enough!
My favorite part of the Barri Gotic is the area between Placa Reial and the seafront. Though you would expect this area to be full of tourists, somehow it escapes the hordes of visitors that occupy other parts of the Gothic Quarter.
