If you don't waste your time on transportation and live in the heart of Barcelona, consider living in Barri Gòtic. The Gothic Quarter is the place of the old Roman village that once occupied the present-day Barcelona. Ancient buildings interchange with recently built glass and steel towers, making Barri Gòtic a colorful blend of the old and new. It is impossible to get bored in this district. It is filled with bars, shops, restaurants, and clubs. If you don’t reside in the Gothic Quarter you should at least take an evening walk through its narrow winding streets. You will eventually stumble upon little plazas where you can relax, have a drink and admire the classic architecture.
