In the years that followed, until the expulsion from Spain, the quarter became the center of life for Jews who were statesmen, doctors and scientists. It is highly recommended to explore the area where the kall was located - the ancient Jewish Quarter. Other remains from the Jewish period can be seen in the "Major" synagogue. The Gothic Quarter attracts not only lovers of architecture, but also lovers of art, because there are many statues, special signs and beautiful mosaics.
In this quarter you will find narrow, dark alleyways paved with stone. There are quite a few Gothic buildings, palaces and churches. The character of the quarter is influenced by various artists and artists who have painted its landscapes and streets over the years, including famous names such as Picasso and Juan Miro. The old squares, markets, clothing stores and art galleries, combined with street artists, musicians and clowns, provide a picturesque atmosphere that makes it a must-see destination in Barcelona.
The district has several places worth visiting. Among them we recommend entering the Gothic Cathedral and its special courtyard, the Church of Santa Maria del Mar, the Picasso Museum, the University of Barcelona and the Ancient Synagogue. Enjoy!
At Saint James's Square (Plaça Sant Jaume) in the center of the quarter, opposite the Cathedral of St. Eulalia, you will find Barcelona's urban market. On weekends, from noon, the Sardana, the famous Catalan dance, is danced there.
