Barri Gotic

oldest part of the city

Barri Gotic

The Barri Gotic can be easily recognised as the oldest and most historic part of the city, with its medieval buildings and labyrinthine narrow roads. From the 4th Century until the middle of the 19th century it was entirely enclosed by strong Roman walls and fortifications.

Perhaps one of the most typical parts of the Gothic district, and certainly the least recommendable to explore by night, is around Plaça Reial. The Plaça itself is always bustling with tourists, party-loving residents and random weirdos, attracted by the many bars and clubs that line its perimeter.
