    Stop At: Placa de Sant Jaume, Placa Sant Jaume, 08002 Barcelona Spain

    The Plaça Sant Jaume has been the city's political centre almost since its inception. Today the Plaça Sant Jaume is an open space, a "lung" in the middle of the Gothic Quarter. The square is the site of the most important buildings in the lives of Barcelona and Catalonia: City Hall and the Palau de la Generalitat.

    Duration: 2 minutes

    Stop At: MUHBA Temple d'August, c/ Paradis, 10, 08002 Barcelona Spain

    As you explore Barcelona's Gothic Quarter you'll come across one of the city's best-kept secrets in a building on Carrer Paradís. Inside a small medieval courtyard, the four columns from the Temple of Augustus have survived despite the passing of the centuries. They are more than 2,000 years old, like Barcelona itself.

    Duration: 2 minutes

    Stop At: Barcelona Cathedral, Pla de la Seu, S/N, 08002 Barcelona Spain

    The Catedral de la Santa Creu i Santa Eulàlia watches impassively the passing of time in a constantly moving and changing Barcelona. The Cathedral also reflects the different generations who have left their imprint and the blend of architectural styles in this predominantly Gothic building which needs to be viewed inside in order to fully understand its splendour.

    Duration: 5 minutes

    Stop At: Placa Sant Felip Neri, Paseo de Palau Episcopal, Barri Gotic, 08002 Barcelona Spain

    The narrow, labyrinthine streets of the Gothic Quarter come out into this unexpected spot. A tiny square with a charming little fountain in the middle and overlooked by the baroque church of Sant Felip Neri. On one side, you can see the buildings that once housed the city's shoemakers' and coppersmiths' guilds, which moved here from their premises on Carrer de la Bòria and Carrer de la Corribia, respectively.

    Duration: 2 minutes

    Stop At: Palau Episcopal de Barcelona, C. del Bisbe, 5, 08002 Barcelona, Spain

    A building with an array of different styles due to the many modifications that it has undergone over the years. The oldest work dates back to the end of the twelfth century. It is Romanesque in style and still retains its arched twin-columned gallery that leads on to the courtyard. The very same courtyard has some Gothic elements such as its 15th century windows. The 18th c. façade that faces onto the Plaça Nova is by Josep Mas and has a series of wooden galleries. The last work on the building was carried out in 1928, when the Plaça Garriga i Bachs façade was built.


    Duration: 2 minutes

    Stop At: Casa de l'Ardiaca, Calle Santa Llucia 1, 08021 Barcelona Spain

    The Casa de l'Ardiaca, the residence of the ecclesiastical hierarchy from the 12th century onwards, has undergone many alterations over the years, such as the ones carried out in the early 16th century which connected the building with the dean's residence. This was also the period when the porticoed central courtyard was built and the Renaissance-style decorations, which tie in with the flamboyant Gothic style of the original building, completed. A staircase leads to the upper terrace, a balcony in the purest Romeo and Juliet style.

    Duration: 2 minutes

    Stop At: Plaça Nova, 08002 Barcelona, Spain

    The origins of Barcelona's Plaça Nova can be traced back to 1358, when it was the site of the city's hay market. At the time, the locals could still see one of the four gates in the wall to the Roman city, which led to the Forum, along the Cardus. Two circular towers flank the gate that leads into the heart of the Gothic Quarter. These are the result of renovations carried out during the 12th century, although the origins of the defence towers and wall can be traced back as far as the 1st century BC and the 4th century AD. A replica of a section of the Roman aqueduct emerges from the side of the Archdeacon's House, or Casa de l'Ardiaca, marking one of the points where water was conveyed to the city. Opposite, a visual poem by the Catalan artist Joan Brossa, spells out the word Barcino.

    Duration: 2 minutes

    Stop At: Palau de Lloctinent, Carrer dels Comtes 2, 08002 Barcelona Spain

    Now is the Archive of the Crown of Aragon is a building of the 16th-century which has a beautiful Renaissance courtyard.

    Duration: 1 minute

    Stop At: Placa del Rei, s/n, 08002 Barcelona Spain

    The Conjunt Monumental de la Plaça del Rei in Barcelona is, arguably, the Gothic architectural ensemble which best exemplifies the city's medieval past. The royal palace, the Palau Reial Major, and its surrounding buildings, enclose a harmonious and peaceful square which is still imbued with Barcelona's splendour during the Middle Ages.

    Duration: 2 minutes

    Stop At: Basilica dels Sants Martirs Just i Pastor, Carrer de Rere Sant Just, S/N, 08002 Barcelona Spain

    Tradition has it that this is Barcelona's oldest church. Whether this is true or not, it is clear that this 14th-century building stands in one of the Gothic Quarter's most charming and least explored spots. Another example of the splendour of the city in the medieval era.

    Duration: 5 minutes

    Stop At: Carrer de la Ciutat, 08002 Barcelona, Spain

    Medieval gate of the City Council

    Duration: 2 minutes
