GOTHIC QUARTER

The origins of Barcelona

CATHEDRAL OF ST. EULALIA

Gothic Architecture
The most important site of the Gothic Quarter is the Cathedral, where you can see the crypt where St. Eulàlia is buried, a remarkable choir, gorgeous side chapels, and the lovely cloister where the geese live. Entrance is optional: ask your guide to just see it from outside, or let you quickly go in and out to check it out, or take you inside and show you around in detail, as you prefer.

CALL

Medieval Jewish Section
If you were not too interested in the Cathedral, you might prefer to visit the Call, the medieval Jewish Section, that despite having been attacked in 1391 it is still a place full of history that keeps its medieval flair. Here is located the oldest synagogue in Europe.
