Without question the area most synonymous with Barcelona that captures so much of what the city has stood for, is the Barri Gòtic (Gothic Quarter). A trip to the Barri Gotic can truly feel like a journey back in time, as you enter the narrow streets and find yourself negotiating a labyrinth of possibilities that will confuse yet delight you, as each step taken reveals another layer of this incredibly complex and detailed arena.
There is a deluge of religious landmarks to visit and enjoy, including the Catedral de la Santa Creu i Santa Eulalia (Barcelona Cathedral) , Basílica Santa Maria Del Pi and the medieval Jewish Quarter El Call, which offers a fascinating glimpse into the history of the Jews of Catalonia. Your trip to Barcelona would not be complet without a tour of the quarter that helped shape so much of what the city is today.
