The district's Gothic Quarter is the best place to check out historic architecture along medieval streets that now host an array of bars and tasty restaurants. There's a number of historic churches you'll want to snap photos of here, including the Gothic-style Basilica de Santa Maria del Pi and 13th-century Cathedral of Barcelona, before heading into the Museum of the History of Barcelona, where you can learn about the city's heritage and see the remnants of Roman buildings.

    Year-round holidays in Ciutat Vella

    Barcelona is a popular place to visit all year long, thanks to its coastal locale, sunny weather and many amenities. Summers bring a swell of travelers who escape to the beaches, but temperatures in the middle of the season can be quite hot. Late spring and early fall offer a nice compromise, with warm afternoons still ideal for dips in the Mediterranean, but a lower level of crowds on the beach. No matter when you visit, be sure to reserve your Ciutat Vella vacation rental early, as the waterfront district is a desirable place to stay.
