Barcelona see + do

Although their boundaries may seem arbitrary, history and city planners have defined clear borders for the neighborhoods of Barcelona. Each district has its own personality and distinctive features; where you should go depends entirely on the kind of experience you're after. The Barri Gòtic (Gothic Quarter), with its Roman ruins, spired cathedral, stately palaces, and liberal sprinkling of romantic patios and plazas, is the essence of old-world Europe. Nearby, El Born, which peaked in the Middle Ages, boast soul-stirring medieval churches and haunts, as well as a (very chic) grab bag of trendy boutiques, bars, and restaurants. For cutting-edge contemporary design, art, and architecture, multicultural El Raval is the place to be, while a stroll through the Eixample reveals fanciful modernist creations dating from the late 19th century.
