Walking through the Gothic district of Barcelona, Spain not far from Las Ramblas is like taking a step back in time. It used to be known as the “Cathedral District” and it’s what is left of the Roman and middle ages. Now days it is called the Gothic Quarter in Barcelona and the architecture is amazing here.
I enjoyed the Gothic area for many reasons. One because it’s a great place to cool off in the hot months! Even when it was 89 degrees outside it seemed only 69 degrees. The buildings are so close together at times the sun can get into the streets making it much cooler. It did open up occasionally in common areas.
