Barcelona’s Barrio Gotico


I took this in the Gothic quarter (Barrio Gotico) of Barcelona. I think this bridge across the Carrer del Bisbe is so lovely.


Many of the buildings date back to Medieval and Roman times. The streets are labyrinthine and very narrow, so they are closed to most traffic. It was a nice place to take a stroll.

Isn’t the craftmanship amazing?

Hope your week’s going well so far.

  4. The bridge reminds me of the Bridge of Sighs in Venice, although this one is much more ornate.

    I just had a chill when I clicked on your post and saw it’s title and the photos. I’ve been writing a story these past days. A short crime story set in the Barrio Gotico. Isn’t that an uncanny coincidence? I so loved it when i was there. Beautiful pictures.

    • Oh, that is truly eerie, Caroline. What are the odds? Slim, I’d say.
      I really liked the area too. It was so nice to walk those narrow streets without cars. A nice change from La Ramblas.
