The Neighborhood of Ciutat Vella
The very first district of Barcelona arose from the walled enclosure that surrounded the old city. It is what is known as Ciutat Vella, a fascinating network of streets and squares through which you can go through the history of Barcelona. Ciutat Vella brings together four neighborhoods, each of which is of prime importance in the construction of Barcelona and has become a pilgrimage route for any visitor: the Gòtic, which is the oldest urban nucleus of our city; Sant Pere, Santa Caterina, Born and Ribera – the medieval quarter; The Raval, the nucleus that was articulated around the rural roads outside the wall; And Barceloneta, a seafaring neighborhood next to the port that was built in the mid-eighteenth century under the watchful eye of the Citadel, the military fortress built to repress Barcelona after the revolt of 1714.
In spite of its name, Ciutat Vella is one of the most modern and lively districts of Barcelona. In Ciutat Vella you can follow the footsteps of the ancient Romans, pray in Gothic temples that aspire to touch the sky, stroll through palaces that the Indians built for their mistresses, follow the trail of the great modernist architects or enjoy the cultural offer of the modern Barcelona in Raval.
Here you will find anything you need – local and international shops, grocery stores, multiple restaurants, bars, small squares . It is a very central and indeed great place to live and to stay when in Barcelona. For more properties, take a look at our selection of Real Estate in Barcelona.
