The Gothic Quarter is located above the rests of the old Roman Barcino. Along with the El Born, it forms the known as Old Town. This is the place where the medieval essence of the Catalan capital rests at. The small streets and the squares are full of bars, restaurants and places to have a drink that offer the tourists a gastronomic experience of great quality. This is one of the most visited regions of Barcelona, something that can be confirmed at the vermouth time, when the tapas bars are full of activity. This is the perfect moment to eat the Pa de Pagés Català, the Salchichón de Vic (sausage), both with I.G.P. and the Mongeta del Ganxet with D.O.P..
When eating in the Gothic Quarter, there’s a great offer of places that are already familiar with dealing with the crows, and that also offer good prices. The surroundings of the Plaza Real are probably the best place to enjoy the gastronomic offer. But we must not forget about the Ramblas, the famous street that divides the Old Town from the neighborhood El Rava, whic also offers a lot of more touristy restaurants.
To complete your meal in Barcelona, enjoy some other great local quality products such as the wines with D.O. : Alella, Cataluña and Pla de Bages. Another option is a glass of Cava with D.O. The celebration of Sant Jordi can be the perfect occasion to discover everything there is to eat in the Gothic Quarter of Barcelona.
