Nothing better than exploring Barcelona than at the heart of the city. Here you will find the emblematic street of the ‘Paseo de Las Ramblas’ a tree lined pedestrian walkway with cafés and souvenir kiosks along the way. See the ‘Paseo de Colón’ and the famous ‘Plaza de Cataluña’. Continuing down Las Ramblas, if you go further into the narrow streets you can discover a variety of small shops and charming restaurants that leads to the Gothic Quarter and the majestic Cathedral of Barcelona. Take a walk along the cobbled streets where you will come to the Frederic Marés Museum, the Plaza Sant Jaume or the ‘Porta de L’Angel shopping street.
