Gothic Quarter in Barcelona, Spain

Spain Barcelona Quarter

The Gothic Quarter in Barcelona, Spain, located between the Rambla in the west and Via Leietana in the east, is well known as the city’s historic centre.

The first traces of settlement in the area of the Quarter date back about 133 B.C.




Despite its name, a number of landmark Gothic buildings in the neighborhood do not date to the Middle Ages. The district was renovated from the ground up several times, most recently for the Olympic Games in 1992.

Still, in no other district are as many monumental buildings and interesting museums as close to each other as in the Gothic Quarter.
