Guided Tour: The Gothic quarter

The Gothic quarter, is in reality the historical center of Barcelona. The city’s history starts with the construction of the fortified city, called Barcino by the Romans, approximately in 15 A.C. You can still find lots of architectural remains from this time: fortified walls, guard towers, aqueducts and baths...
Then we can also see the great buildings of the middle ages like the cathedral, numerous churches and basilicas, the Palace of the Generalitat and the episcopal palace...

Walking through these squares and streets we'll make you travel in time and discover the rich history of the city. Making a list of all the monuments we will discover together would take a long time, but to number just a few:

The beautiful Pi square,presided for years by a pine tree, since according to popular legend an image of the Virgin appeared on this pine tree.

The Basilica of Santa María del Pi, built in the XIV century, representative of Catalan Gothic style.

The Jewish Quarter called “el Call” and the remains of the synagogue.

The Sant Felip Neri plaza, with its baroque church and its octagonal fountain. One of the prettiest squares of the district, hard to find in a maze of alleys.

The neo-Gothic cathedral dedicated to Saint Eulalia, the patron saint of Barcelona, and its splendid cloister.

The house of l’Ardiaca in English, home of the archdeacon, a neo-Gothic palace, built partly on the Roman wall.

La Plaza del Rei (The Royal plaza) and the complex which was the residence of the Counts of Barcelona and the Kings of Aragon.

The Plaza de Sant Jaume (Saint James Plaza) flanked by the town hall and the Palace of the Generalitat, the seat of the autonomous government.
