Well, most of the people are used to the modern side of Barcelona, Sagrada, Guell Parc or the beach but the old part called Barri Gòtic is a very nice piece of the wonderful city.
Here, in the Gothic Quarter, we find the City Hall and the seat of the Catalan Government, the Palau de la Generalitat, the Cathedral and other Gothic churches, including Santa Maria del Pi and Sants Just i Pastor. Very near the Plaça de Sant Jaume, right in the middle of this Barcelona neighbourhood, is the old Jewish Quarter, the Call Jueu, with its endless narrow streets, where some remains of the ancient synagogue still survive.
In the Gothic Quarter, the Plaça del Rei proudly showcases the architectural ensemble made up of the royal residences of the Catalan-Aragonese monarchs. Below the square, you can visit the impressive archaeological remains of Roman Barcino. Behind the Cathedral stands the beautiful Plaça de Sant Felip Neri, with its baroque church. The square is surrounded by narrow streets in a Barcelona neighbourhood suffused with history which comes to life when you go there.

mi piacciono molto questi scatti, il colore della facciata e i dettagli sono veramente belli e il taglio utilizzato li mette bene in evidenza.

This is a side of Barcelona I have not seen on TE before Daniel but how charming it is. I like this simple composition very much and as is your style you have found a quiet corner of the city with character and delightful details. I like the soft light here. Lovely. Warm regards Rosemary

This is a most attractive composition with that beautifully lit end wall. I like the point of view very much and the subtle tones. Clarity is very good indeed. A well observed scene very well rendered. Thanks for sharing.

another Daniel composition.
If I had to guess immediately, I would have thought this was Rome, but i'm totally wrong.
I like the small balcony on the left, certainly not for standing on though.
lots of charm and i like the dim light

I like the texture of the wall and the many discreet but fine details, such as the uneven corner stones to the right, the red canister on the balcony, the sign in the lower corner, lamps, green plants etc.

Very charming corner of Barcelona, a city I have not yet been, image like this makes me itch to go soon. Love the warm tone of the yellow ochre and the balcanies with flowers adds to the charming quality. The light is low but you make a really wonderful exposure with good details.

Nice windows and perfect exposure.
Perhaps a more thin frame would be better.

Intéressante façade que tu as très bien cadrée. Jolie lumière également.

you´re right Barcelona is not only Gaudi or modern architecture,but also this beautiful gothic district.I´ve been three times to Barcelona and visited Barri Gòtic for the first time on my last trip.
Your composition captured nicely its unique charm and beauty.I´m really impressed by the perfect,symmetric framing you you´ve managed to do here.
Have a nice weekend

Very beautiful picture with special regards to the composition, colors and exposure!
TFS - congrats,

This is a delightful picture and of an area of Barcelona which we do not usually see: normally we see lots of pictures depicting Gaudi's amazing architecture, but this one is refreshingly different.
You have composed this one superbly but I think it is the amazing light and the way in which you have handled it that makes this photograph so very appealing. The light and colours are perfect, your exposure accurate and the details and sharpness are exquisite.
