Port Vell and Barri Gotíc, Spain - Barcelona, Home of La Rambla
El Barri Gotic is the very heart of Barcelona. It is here that you will find the remnants of the city's Roman past, wander the narrow alleyways from the 15th Century and observe the largest concentration of Gothic buildings anywhere in Europe.
The area is full of important sights to visit including the Cathedral La Seu, Placa del Rei, Palau de la Generalitat de Catalunya and the Casa de la Ciutat. The real charm of el Barri Gotic, however, is the pleasure derived from simply strolling the narrow streets of the quarter. Glance up between the buildings and you will be greeted with sightings of wrought iron balconies with Spanish tile bottoms, blooming flowers and bright shafts of sunlight. On the street level of almost every building are stores, cafes and tapas bars that are just as popular with the locals as they are with visitors.
To the south of el Barri Gotic is Port Vell, the old port. Previously almost abandoned, the Port has undergone a transformation since the 1992 Olympics. During the day, strolling along the beaches under the sun can make for a relaxing day while at night the area livens up as locals and tourists alike come to dine at the best seafood restaurants the city has to offer. The largest aquarium in Europe is also housed here, offering spectacular educational displays of over 11,000 animals!

An Explanation of the Ratings: The first column of figures is the highest score possible in each category. The column on the far right is the score for this particular apartment in this category. For this set of ratings, we have asked every Untour staff person who has seen the apartment to rate the individual features. Many of these staff people have been in a position to hear reports (good and bad) from customers over the years, so they offer a particularly well-informed perspective. Nevertheless, customer ratings will be included in the overall ratings as soon as possible.
Please keep in mind that tastes vary. These ratings give an overall sense of how most people feel about a factor; you are in the best position to know if your tastes and requirements are likely to be in the mainstream of opinion or if you have particular needs. If you have any questions about the meaning of any of the factors rated, or about this apartment, please call our office toll-free at 1-999-868-6871.
