Adjacent to Gothic Quarter is Barrio de la Ribera, also of medieval origin, where several historic buildings have been turned into museums, such as Palau Aguilar which is, nowadays, Picasso Museum.
The renowned Las Ramblas of Barcelona is a series of lively streets that combine to make a broad avenue leading to harbor and Mediterranean Sea. What a superb atmosphere they possess!
To south-west lies fortress-topped hill of Montjuic, where Barcelona Olympic Stadium and some fine museums are located.
At southern end of Ramblas lies Barcelona Harbor and Port Vell. This area now combines high-class restaurants with trendy clubs and bars.
To be found in central area of Barcelona (the Eixample) are fantasy works of Gaudí such as Park Güell, Palau Güell and Casa Milà La Pedrera.
However, Gaudí is best remembered for part he played in construction of Cathedral of Barcelona - La Sagrada Familia.
So ... boomerang on over to Barcelona and get to know Gaudí!
