Fortunately we had chosen to stay in this area, it is packed full of character with plenty of bars and restaurants to choose from. We visited quite a few areas of the city and this was by far our favourite

Barrio Gotico (Barri Gotic)
With its iconic, old-Europe streets and alleys, this
picturesque neighbourhood is the very heart of
Barcelona. It blends historic artifacts from its days
under Roman dominion up through the Spanish Civil War
with a vibrant modern-day culture of artisan shops and
authentic culinary experiences. Avid explorers will be
thrilled to discover quaint terraces and plazas
brought to life by the many small bars and local

The narrow streets are a dead give away. The main Catholic Cathedral is in the middle of it all and the border is indeed Las Ramblas.
