It's an essential place for those who visit Barcelona. You can walk through its narrow streets full of charm. If you like the streetart you can find small works of art.

In my opinion this is the most authentic quarter of Barcelona. Such lovely buildings... Restaurants and shops. All the narrow alleys are very interesting. Worth doing a walking tour in this area. So much to learn about the history.
