Let's discover the Roman and Gothic Quarter of Barcelona

The beautiful neighbourhood known as the Gothic Quarter is so called because it used to be the Roman and the Gothic village and thus has some remnants of its glorious past.

The Plaça del Rei was the nerve centre of historic Barcelona. Nearby, City Hall, reveals the medieval roots of this institution and, just a short distance away, the Cathedral stands out among the Gothic and neo-Gothic buildings, competing with such beautiful churches as Santa Maria del Pi and the magnificent Santa Maria del Mar, in the Ribera neighbourhood. The palazzos on Carrer Montcada are located here and are well worth a visit. The street is also crammed with museums and art galleries.

On the Via Laietana, the Plaça Ramón Berenguer displays its harmonious outline nestling among the city’s Roman and medieval legacy. Near the waterfront, there are Gothic-style civic buildings which speak about Barcelona’s medieval seafaring past, such as the former grain exchange La Llotjaand the shipyards, the Reials Drassanes, the home of the Museu Marítim de Barcelona.

THE PLAN

15.45: We'll begin our walk at Plaza Nova, in front of the Cathedral, where we will have a quick coffee and introduce ourselves.

Then we will visit the impressive Cathedral and from there we will discover part of the Roman walls and the Roman Temple of August while enjoying many Gothic Palaces and Churchs (there are many cool / curious shops and bars).

Then we'll walk through El Born (Barrio de la Ribera) and we will visit the magnificent Santa Maria del Mar, my favourite Gothic Church.

The guided visit will finish at 20:00pm.

TOTAL PRICE: 12 EUROS (it includes visit to the Cathedral -6 euros- + guided visit/org fee -6 euros-)


MINIMUM 5 PEOPLE!
