Photographer's Note

Carrer del Bisbe Irurita situated in the Gotic Quarter.

I had bad lucky. The rain spoiled my holidays in Barcelona. It was raining one week.
Earlier, during this holidays I was in Cote d'Azur in France (Nice)) - it was raining there, too. Because of this I went to Barcelona but the rain went together with me :-)

The Gothic Quarter (Catalan: Barri G˛tic, IPA: [ˈbari ˈɣɔtik]) is the centre of the old city of Barcelona. It stretches from La Rambla to Via Laietana, and from the Mediterranean seafront to Ronda de Sant Pere.
Despite several changes undergone in the 19th and early 20th century, many of the buildings date from Medieval times, some from as far back as the Roman settlement of Barcelona. Remains of the squared Roman Wall can be seen around Tapineria and Sots-Tinent Navarro to the north, Avinguda de la Catedral and Plaša Nova to the west and Carrer de la Palla to the south. El Call, the medieval Jewish quarter, is located within this area too.
The Barri G˛tic retains a labyrinthine street plan, with many small streets opening out into squares. Most of the quarter is closed to regular traffic although open to service vehicles and taxis. [Wiki]
