Next, you will take the metro for one stop to another historical place that attracts millions of people from all over the world. We are dealing with Plaza Catalunya, a huge square designed way back in 1859 by Ildefons Cerdà, situated in the centre of the city and considered the place where old and modern city meet.
Right here you will start your tour around the Gothic Quarter, passing by the gorgeous Passeig the Gracia. It is one of Barcelona’s top business and shopping areas, containing some of the greatest pieces of architecture in town. Two of them are Gaudì’s Casa Batllò and Casa Milà. These former private houses, designed in early 1900, are now one of the most popular touristic attractions in the world because of their unique facades, patterns and shapes. It is going to be absolutely twisting!
The last stop will be the Gothic Quarter, one of the most suggestive and ancient parts of Barcelona. During the Middle Ages, public life took place right here and therefore some really imposing Gothic buildings are all over it. The most peculiar thing about this district is that architectonic styles from different ages blend together giving life to an incredible environment.
