Barri Gòtic & El Born, the most historic districts of Barcelona
Take a two hour guided accessible tour around the old city of Barcelona, Barcelona’s Gothic Quarter and El Born neighbourhood. Find the hidden secrets of the oldest architectural structures of the city through Barcelona’s Medieval and Renaissance sites. When carrying out some renovation works in the 1930s, a whole complex of Roman ruins were found underneath the heart of the old city.
Another hidden gem in Barcelona’s Gothic Quarter is Plaça Felip Neri – the entrance to Barcelona’s Jewish Quarter. This tiny square shares space with a church, the church that Gaudí was on his way to visit before his tragic accident. It is also one of the places of Barcelona where you can see the effects of the Spanish Civil War bombings. The beautiful neighbourhood known as the Gothic Quarter is probably the district with most history of the whole city, with so much to discover around each corner.
In El Born neighbourhood, you will discover a Gothic church from the XIV century, Santa Maria del Mar. The sea once lapped at the foot of this Gothic Basilica back in medieval times before Barcelona’s expansion. Having passed the church you’ll come across Passeig del Born, this is the heart and soul of the Born area.
We definitely recommend a guided accessible tour to not miss anything!
