The Area of the Gothic Quarter
The Gothic Quarter is one of the four districts that make up the Ciutat Vella district of Barcelona. It is the oldest nucleus of the city and its historic centre. The structure of the neighborhood remained almost intact until the nineteenth century, when the old medieval walls were demolished and parish cemeteries were transformed into public squares. It is in the Gothic Quarter where you find the remains of the ancient Roman city Barcino but also many of the main medieval buildings of the city, such as the Cathedral and the Church of the Pi, together with the privileged royal buildings around the Plaza del Rey square.
Comtessa de Sobradiel is in what is called the “Call”, the oldest, most sophisticated and quiet part of the Gothic neighbourhood, steps from the Marina, and characterized by small plazas, pedestrian streets and boutique shops. This area is a great place to be in while in Barcelona and thanks to its central location it’s an easy walking distance to the marina area, the Born district and other places of interest.
