Guide to Ciutat Vella/Barri Gòtic


Ciutat Vella, also called Barri Gòtic, is the oldest neighborhood in Barcelona and today it is also the most touristic area. It is not hard to understand since the astonishing architecture and the many narrow and crowded streets gives a picturesque atmosphere.

In the heart of this neighborhood you will find the mighty Cathedral situated next to a big square.  Every Sunday people come here to dance Sardanas - the Catalan traditional folk dance. There are also many small and cosy squares to be found in this area.

Ciutat Vella offers an infinite selection of bars, restaurants and cafés for every taste. The nightlife is varied and vibrant.

If you happen to be in the mood for shopping you won't be disappointed. The popular shopping street Portal de L'Angel and the smaller shops on Avinyo and Ferran will keep you busy.

Las Ramblas, the most well-known street in Barcelona is also situated in Ciutat Vella.
 



Accommodation in Ciutat Vella/Barri Gòti

If you choose to stay in this neighborhood you get access to most of what Barcelona has to offer. I recommend a stay in Ciutat Vella/Barri Gòtic for everyone who visit Barcelona but especially you who visit for the first time.
