Barri Gòtic - the Gothic quarter

As Barcino Barcelona had its early history here

The Barri Gòtic adjacent to the northeast side of the Ramblas.

Here began the history of Barcelona as the Roman settlement Barcino. The former main roads go through the district today. Most preserved monuments date from the 14th and 15 centuries, the heyday as a maritime power.
Many narrow and winding streets dominate the skyline of the Gothic quarter, the Barri Gòtic. The many sunny places before historic buildings gather around the cathedral, the heart of the Barri Gòtic.
The Barri Gòtic was in the 20s fully rehabilitated and now shines in a new lustre. Some of the most beautiful and most famous museums are located in this area.
Many small, but very specific shops can be found in the streets.
