Walking Las Ramblas: Starting from Monument de Colom, walk north along Las Ramblas. Your first stop will be the Reials Dressanes (medieval dockyards) and the Museum Maritime. The Wax Museum comes along next, followed by Plaça Reial, a gorgeous square with an iron fountain. As you continue on, look for the mosaic in the walkway by Joan Miro. Next is the Sant Josep (Boqueria Market) which houses popular food stalls. Walking on, look for the Palau de la Virreina, a lavish 18th-century rococo building. As you come to Carme street, look for Iglesia de Belén, an ancient Jesuit church with a Gothic interior. You’ll finish at the Font de Canaletes, a 19th-century iron fountain, near the Placa de Catalunya. Allow about 3–4 hours.
Walking Around the Gothic Quarter: Begin at Plaça Nova with one of the Roman gates to the old city. Here you’ll see the 12th-century Palau Episcopal (Bishop’s Palace). A street opposite the palace leads to the Cathedral, which you may enter by the main door (wear respectful clothing—no shorts or tank tops). Leave the cathedral by way of the cloisters and enter Plaça Garigia i Bachs—cross the square to Plaça Sant Felip Neri. Nearby is a shoe museum. Exit to Carrer del Bisbe and walk south to the Placa Sant Jaume, the heart of the city. You can walk north through the same way, or wander down the enchanting streets. Allow 3–4 hours. Note: Look for signs showing the route of an alternate walking tour, too.
