Gothic Quarter (Barri Gotic)

4.5

Barcelona’s Gothic Quarter, or Barri Gòtic as the locals refer to it, is an incredible old world district filled with ancient treasures, Roman walls, castles and churches, some dating as far back as 15 B.C. during the times of the Roman Emperor Augustus. The Gothic Quarter is the centre of the old city of Barcelona. The district retains a labyrinthine street plan, with many small streets opening out into squares. Most of the quarter is closed to regular traffic. The Gothic Quarter has played an important role in our understanding of the complex process Barcelona underwent in an attempt to promote a sense of national identity of Catalan Art and Culture. The Gothic Quarter takes a visitor back through the ages with its numerous medieval buildings, Among the principal buildings are included Barcelona Cathedral’s façade, Hiking Center of Catalonia’s building, The Flamboyant-style bridge, Casa Padellàs, Aguilar Palace and Pignatelli Palace. The Center of Catalonia’s features the oldest Roman remains in the Gothic Quarter with a pagan temple built for the Emperor Augustus in the first century B.C.
