Barri Gòtic and Raval

The Gothic Barrio is a labyrinth of alleys, squares and palaces. The pulsating heart of the city, where the famous cathedral of Santa Maria del Pì stands, to get lost and find yourself walking without a destination. Take a stroll through the narrow streets full of shops and restaurants, have a coffee at Plaça Real or visit the nearby Picasso Museum for an unforgettable time.

From here begins the Raval, the multi-ethnic neighborhood. It was called Barrio Chino, because in the early 1900’s it was the ghetto where oriental workers lived. But it is also the former neighborhood of prostitutes, thieves and bullfighters. Today it is a trendy neighborhood, among ethnic restaurants, shops and artists. And here is also the MACBA, the Museum of Contemporary Art, a great former hospice that today hosts events and exhibitions.

La Rambla

Barcelona’s most famous avenue extends over one kilometer from Plaça de Catalunya to the Christopher Columbus Monument. A pedestrian area full of street artists and Miró mosaics set on the ground.

La Rambla is flanked by a multitude of souvenir shops, restaurants and tapas, the typical bars that serve delicious appetizers to accompany a beautiful caraffa of sangria or Spanish cerveça.

The main means are the metro, buses, trams, Ferrocarril, the train,  bus 46 from the airport to the center of Barcelona and the Montjuïc funicular (not to be confused with the cable way).

Special Art

Gaudí

Barcelona means walking through Gaudí’s works. From its houses (Pedrera, Batllò) to its gardens of fairytale architectures (Park Guell). The most famous work is undoubtedly the Sagrada Familia Savior Temple, designed by him over a century ago and still to be completed.

Picasso Museum

It is said that Picasso, despite being in Malaga, considered Barcelona his proper city. The largest collection of this artist is right here, in a complex of medieval buildings in the heart of La Ribera district.

Mirò Foundation

The works of Joan Mirò, Catalan, born and raised in the alleys of the Barrio Gotico in Barcelona, are preserved in a large white building specifically designed on Montjuic Hill.

Poble Espanyol

It dates back to the 1920s, the idea of two architects to bring together the unique features of all the Spanish regions in one place. Thus, in a village in the center of Barcelona, there is an architectural complex that encloses all the artistic traditions of Spain.
