You can almost feel history unfold as you stroll along the maze-like alleys of Barri Gotic in the heart of old Barcelona. It is also has a very hip and contemporary vibe, so the neighborhood is not just for the history buffs and the culture vultures. There is just so much to see and do in this bustling part of the city.
Visit. The beautiful gothic Barcelona Cathedral is free to visit, however, make sure you are dressed modestly in order not to be turned away at the door.
