Plaça Catalunya & Gothic Cathedral
The Plaça de Catalunya is one of Barcelona's most important spots, acting as the meeting point between the old part of the city and the Ensanche. The plaza is one of Spain's largest, with a surface area of 30,000 square metres, and marks the starting point for some of the city's main thoroughfares, like the Ramblas, Paseo de Gracia and Rambla Catalunya.
The term Gothic District refers to a number of streets around the Cathedral. We are at the heart of the old town here; it is a dynamic space that has over the years lived the history that has left his mark on buildings and current urban landscape. There are traces of the roman colony “Barcino” the remains of which can be seen in the basement of the Barcelona’s History Museum on Plaça del Rei. This political centre lived on into mediaeval times, it was here that the first institutions of the territorial and municipal government were located – institutions that have subsequently developed into today’s City Council and the Generalitat or regional Government.
La Pedrera & Casa Batlló
Casa Milá, known as La Pedrera for its stony appearance, was created by Antonio Gaudí between 1906 and 1912, when he was in his creative prime. This spectacular modernist building is located in Barcelona's centrally-located Paseo de Gracia.
With its roof of colored ceramic scales, Casa Batlló or Batlló House is one of the most charismatic buildings in the “Eixample” District and one of Gaudi’s most characteristic works.The highly original façade is topped by ceramic tiles reminiscent of fish scales, in a rhythmicsequence that is set to resemble the backbone of a dragon. The circle Block of Discord is formed by Casa Batlló by Antoni Gaudí, Casa Amatller by Josep Puig i Cadafalch and Casa Lleó I Morera by Lluís Domènech i Montaner, which stands on the corner and it is crownedby an arbor. Nearby, you’ll find the Godia, housed in a magnificent building, the Museu del Modernisme Català, which showcases one of the finest collections of furniture, painting and sculpture from this period, and the Fundació Antoni Tàpies, an example of the early modernista architecture.
