Exploring the inner city Neighbourhoods (Barrios)…

by on Dec.25, 2017, under Life, Photography

For our first full day in Barcelona we headed out to wander the inner city Neighbourhoods (Barrios) right on our doorstep. Primarily the Barri Gotic (the Gothic Quarter).

It was Sunday so most places were closed and the city was quiet and empty in the morning. This changed dramatically after midday when the city filled and the streets were busy with crowds of people.

The beautiful neighbourhood known as the Gothic Quarter is so called because it used to be the Roman village and thus has some remnants of its glorious past. The “old city” is in the heart of Barcelona and the “original” Barcelona where the city all started. This area is characterised by winding cobbled ancient streets and wonderfully picturesque architecture.

Eventually we arrived at the port and had a good view down Passeig de Colom to the Columbus Monument.

Heading back we were about to stumble on the Picasso Museum.
