about ciutat vella (old city)

Filled with the tales of the era gone by,  Ciutat Vella (Old City)  is filled with history. Its city hall located in the same spot where kings once reigned is one of the major attractions. The narrow streets, with Gothic mansions, museums, historic churches, bars and restaurants all stand still as a witness to the history and the progress of the present towards the future. The Placa del Rei is reputedly the place where King Ferdinand and Queen Isabella welcomed Columbus after his voyage to America. This is a must-visit place for any history buff to explore the culture of Barcelona in-depth.
