Adventuras en el Barri Gotic

Today's wanderings centered around the Barri Gotic, Barcelona's historic quarter, and included sites such as the Cathedral La Seu, Santa Maria del Pi, and a glimpse of the walls that used to surround the city, put into place by the Romans in the 4th century. The architecture is beautiful and old, and the narrow, winding streets are a treat to explore.

We also continued yesterday's exploration of Las Ramblas, Barcelona's famous walker-friendly thoroughfare. Las Ramblas is hub of activity at all times of day and is full of all sort of surprises both on the street itself and if you choose to venture down one of the side streets. At one end, you find the beautiful Catalunya Square (complete with all the fountains and statues you could wish for), and at the other, the port.

More adventures to come! Thanks for reading.
