Where is it?


In the heart of the Gothic Quartier, right across the street from the City Hall, 2 minuts from the Cathedral. Very close to other monuments such as Santa Maria del Mar, Picasso Museum, Boqueria market, roman temple and walls, etc. Pedestrian neigbourhood, really nice hidden spots. All means of transportation within walking distance. Close to the Ramblas, the Old Harbour, the beach and the wonderful Ciutadella Park. Nightlife, shops, restaurants, monuments, culture... all at hand, impossible to get any closer.
