Gothic District in Barcelona, Spain

The Gothic District or Barri Gòtic in Catalan and Barrio Gótico in Spanish has narrow medieval streets that are in stark contrast with some of Barcelona's more modern neighborhoods. In the late 19th and early 20th centuries, renovations were made to turn this area into a "Gothic District" with restoration of building facades. Nevertheless, it is a beautiful, though sometimes eerie neighborhood with tons of winding streets all lined with unique shops, restaurants, and vendors. There is the Barcelona Cathedral, Pont del Bisbe (elaborate bridge), and plentiful plazas with open air markets.
