In Short: warren-like heart of the old town, complete with Roman ruins and Gothic architecture.
Highlights: La Seu Cathedral and its 13 resident geese, getting lost in the historic Jewish quarter, shops that are one-of-a-kind and the colourful nightlife of the Plaça Reial.
Getting around: metro lines run along both right and left borders of the Gòtico, while the transport hub of Plaça Catalunya (and its airport buses) sits just to the top. Mostly accessible on foot, through the windy medieval streets.
Why stay: fit in with a young, international crowd and never be too far from the thick of things.
Description: Laden with atmosphere, not to mention tiny bars, restaurants, and shops, Barcelonas Gothic quarter is easy to get lost in. Indeed, even though this area dates back to the Middle Ages, the Gótico is still home to the Catalan government, the town hall, and the citys cathedral, and very much the still-beating heart of the city. The sheer concentration of narrow streets makes this area packed full of things to see, do, eat and buy, while squares such as Plaça Sant Jaume and the Plaça Reial provide iconic focal points for the area, and Barcelona as a whole. Access to and from the Gótico is relatively simple as the area sits between the major thoroughfares of Via Laietana and Las Ramblas. A significant part of the areas charm derives from the fact that the majority of it is pedestrianised, which makes immersing yourself in all things medieval that bit easier.
