The Gothic Quarter is the oldest neighborhood in Barcelona, with an origin that dates back to Roman times, from which you can still see some remains of the ancient city of Barcino.
During the medieval period several buildings and palaces were built in the Gothic style, which together with its narrow streets, its local shops and tapas bars, make it a perfect neighborhood to walk around.
There are several places in the neighborhood worth visiting, such as the beautiful Plaza Real, the Jewish quarter, the church and the Plaza de Sant Felip Neri, the Carrer del Bisbe, with its photogenic bridge, the church of Santa Ana, the Cathedral from the Santa Creu i Santa Eulàlia, the Jaume square, Els Cuatre Gats, the Palau del Bisbe, the Plaza del Rey with the Museum of the History of the City, the Temple of Augustus and the shopping street of the Portal de L’Angel.
The Passeig de Gràcia is the most famous avenue and one of the most essential places to visit in Barcelona. This street connects the popular Plaza de Catalunya with the Gracia neighborhood and stands out for its modernist buildings, restaurants and its shops of the most famous and luxurious brands.
Among the jewels of Catalan Modernism on Paseo de Gracia is Casa Batlló, one of the masterpieces of the great Antonio Gaudí, declared World Heritage by Unesco, and our favorite building in the city.
Next to Casa Batlló is the beautiful façade of Casa Amatller, near which there are also Casa Mulleras and Casa Lleó i Morera, the work of another of the great modernist architects, Lluís Domènech i Montaner.
The Casa Milà or La Pedrera, is another of the incredible buildings that Gaudí made in this street and that also deserves a visit, especially its roof. Other buildings on the Passeig de Gràcia that are worth paying attention to are the Enric Batlló House, the Bonaventura Ferrer House, the Malagrida Palace and the Robert Palace.
Park Güell, located in the upper part of Barcelona, is another of Antoni Gaudí’s masterpieces and one of the must-see places in Barcelona.
This naturist style public park in which the sculptures, fountains and buildings are inspired by the undulating forms of nature, is one of the most beautiful in the world. One of our favorite places in the park is the Plaza de la Naturaleza, with a wavy bench full of mosaics and also one of the best viewpoints in Barcelona.
The most famous image of the park and one of the typical souvenirs of the city is located on the Stairway of the Dragon, a large staircase with a fountain and the famous sculpture of the dragon as recommend the business alquiler piso lujo barcelona
The best way to enjoy this incredible place is to wander aimlessly through the park and be surprised by places like the Hipóstila Room, the Guardian House, the Lavandera Portico or the Austrian Gardens.
A few years ago the park restricted access and is now paid. In addition, entry is only allowed every half hour to a quota of 400 people, so long lines can be formed
