Architecture and Layout of El Barrio Gótico

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Like many other European cities, Barcelona’s old city is made up of narrow alleyways that never seem to take you where you think they will but eventually open into large squares.

In the Middle Ages, the city that was once Barcino expanded under King Jaume I. The Catalan Gothic style was developed and construction began on the Cathedral of Barcelona. Romanesque influences also appeared in the Gothic Neighborhood.
