Description

Gothic architecture surfaced in the Medieval era and has the characteristics of grand, tall designs, flying buttresses, pointed arches, vaulted ceilings, airy interiors that let in light, decorative and ornate design, and of course the iconic gargoyles that draw water away from building walls. This aesthetic movement has drastically transformed the castles and cathedrals of the time, and with it the culture of Europe.

Witness a fine example of Gothic architecture in the enchanting Gothic quarter that links the past with the present. See sites like the Placa del Rei, built in the 14th century as the residence of Catalan royalty.

Promenade around the Placa de Sant Felip Neri, a shaded plaza with bullet holes from the Spanish Civil War. Pay homage to Saint Agatha at her Palatine chapel which houses the 15th century Reredos of the High Constable, an iconic Catalonian painting.

Finally visit Placa del Pi, a surprisingly bohemian area in the Gothic quarter and home to the Santa Maria del Pi church. The place is littered with artisan and antique shops, including eclectic bars and restaurants.
