Ciutat Vella

Barcelona's Ciutat Vella (Catalan for old city) is as it name may suggest the city's oldest quarter. It comprises four separate areas, namely the Barri Gotic (the Gothic quarter with its many attractions), Casc Antic (home to the Palau de la Musica Catalana), Raval (site of the La Rambla boulevard), & Barceloneta (the fishermans quarter & Port Vell harbour area).

Getting to the Ciutat Vella is easy; as due to the fact that it forms the city's most central zone most trains & buses passes through it. However if travelling from farther away the major mainline station servicing the area is located at Plaza Catalunya.

Most of the city's main sights & attractions can be found in the Ciutat Vella, with the notable exception of the vast majority of modernist attractions. These tend to be located in the L'Eixample district, the site of the city's 19th century urban extension. The 1992 Barcelona Olympics brought a major facelift to the old town's more run down areas, & as a result has since seen renewed interest from Barcelona's trendier crowd in purchasing property in its residential zones.
