Walking through history in Barcelona’s Gothic quarter

The city of Barcelona grew through centuries to its actual state, but the core of the city remained, and remnants of past times are still open to the eye of every person that steps into the Gothic Quarter. The amount of historical spots and relics is so vast, anyone could spend a whole day visiting all those places and still not uncover everything. I can’t count the times I’ve been in the gothic quarter, I’ve even studied in a school there for some time, and everytime I found a new corner to observe, a new stone to uncover. Last time I visited during the “Festes de Sant Roc” the gothic quarter summer festivities, held every august. Follow me in this walk through history, and let me know in the comments about your impressions or other hidden spots to know in the Gothic Quarter.

The largest modernist site in Europe, many times I have passed by the site and thought “next time”. It was the right time to assist at the Travel Bloggers Meeting event held at Sant Pau, and explore the modernist site.
