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.

The secret history of Barcelona

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.

Discover Barcelona with the best facilities

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!

  • Cathedral of Barcelona
  • Plaça de Felip Neri

In particular, touring the outside of Sagrada Familia, Jord ...

Barcelona’s accessible old city tour

Who?
The Ciutat Vella district is the first choice for many visitors to Barcelona. It is the cultural hub of the city and suitable for any type of traveller. The Gothic Quarter in Barcelona dates back over 2,000 years and is one of the most talked about neighborhoods in the city — full of charm and captivating history. El Born is also perfect for families as well as tourists. It is a picturesque and cultural part of the city, with a vibrant café culture and bar scene. Nowadays people are most attracted to El Born for the shopping, which consists of some beautiful boutiques and shoe shops. It is suitable for every traveller!
What?
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 Gothic Quarter is one of the most famous landmarks in Barcelona. Located in the heart of the old city, this Barcelona neighbourhood features a fusion of buildings dating from Roman times to the 20th century. The main attribute of the Gothic Quarter is the antique aspect of its buildings, narrow streets and the near absence of traffic. In fact, many areas are for pedestrians only and built like a labyrinth of winding streets and hidden squares, that is why we have created a route which is possible for an accessible tour.

Where?
We will be around the beautiful neighborhoods known as the Gothic Quarter and El Born- what used to be the ancient Roman village. Barrio Gótico, Spanish for ‘Gothic Quarter,’ is one of the oldest and most beautiful districts in Barcelona. It is a labyrinth of small streets full of little bars, restaurants and shops. The neighbourhood is part of the Ciutat Vella, Catalan for ‘the old city,’ and is situated right in the city center: it stretches from the famous Ramblas to Via Laietana. El Born is between Via Laietana and Barceloneta and is served by the metro stops Barceloneta and Jaume 1 which are on the same line. Las Ramblas and the center of the city are a pleasant 10 minute walk away. El Born is one Barcelona’s trendiest and most popular neighborhoods famous for its unique medieval streets


When?

At The Barcelonian we believe in sustainable tourism and authenticity, we accomplish this with small groups, our Old City Accessible Tour is never larger than 10 people per group and we only provide this unique tour twice a week, on Mondays and Thursdays at 14:00. *If you need another date please contact us via email at info@thebarcelonian.com
Why?

These days because of the constant modernization it is easy to spot an ancient building right next to one built in the 90s. It is this mix of old and new that brings people from all over the world to stay in the Gothic Quarter. There is a lot to do and even more to see in this bustling neighbourhood. No matter how much time you spend exploring, you will always stumble upon yet another enchanting square or mysterious alleyway, so let us help you not miss out on any of the essentials of the Gothic Quarter of Barcelona.
