|Gothic Quarter - The historic old town|
The Barcelona Barri Gòtic area is also known as the Gothic Quarter and is the area in which the old town of Barcelona is situated. As you will see from the following photos the streets vary considerably in style but the old quarter is generally characterized by narrow cobbled streets with tall old buildings.
Picasso lived and worked in Barri Gòtic from 1895 to 1904 and Joan Miró was born and lived here during his youth.
Barri Gòtic is situated on the right hand side of the La Rambla as we look toward Plaça de Catalunya. For those of you who are new to Barcelona, La Rambla is the famous 1.2 km pedestrianized walkway that is consider to be the centre of Barcelona.
