Gothic Quarter – Barrio Gotico

The Gothic Quarter is within the old city of Barcelona. It reaches out from La Rambla to Via Laietana, and from the Mediterranean seafront to Ronda de Sant Pere. It is a bit of Ciutat Vella zone.

Despite a couple of changes experienced in the nineteenth and early twentieth century, immense quantities of the structures date from Medieval times, some from as far again as the Roman settlement of Barcelona. Stays of the squared Roman Wall can be seen around Tapineria and Sots-Tinent Navarro to the north, Avinguda de la Catedral and Plaça Nova to the west and Carrer de la Palla to the south. El Call, the medieval Jewish quarter, is put inside this extent too.


The Barrio Gòtico holds a complex street plan, with various little paths opening out into squares. An expansive part of the quarter is closed to reliable movement yet open to organization vehicles and taxis.
