This is the core of the city, where it all started 2000 years ago. Enjoy the Gothic Quarter’s charming corners and squares hidden away down ancient narrow streets.
- Facade of the Cathedral. The works in the Gothic Quarter started in the 1400s’ and finished 6 centuries later. You will also see the remains of the Roman Wall nearby.
- Placa del Rei (King’s Square). The square is a medieval marvel surrounded by some of the most grand monuments of the time: the tower of King Marti is 5 floors high and was built in 1555; the chapel of Santa Agata (1600s) and Salo dle Tinell (1300s). It is said that the Catholic monarchs, Ferdinand and Isabela, received Columbus here on his return from America.
