  • The famous Ramblas of Barcelona, a pedestrian street that separates the Gothic Quarter from the colourful Raval neighbourhood, unites the centre of the city with the sea. A pleasant walk from Plaça Catalunya to the statue of Christopher Columbus. From the Ramblas, you can enter La Boquería market, the Teatro Liceo opera house and Plaça Real. 
  • Sagrada Familia: an UNESCO World Heritage site, the Sagrada Familia is Antoni Gaudí’s largest work. Inspired by forms in nature, the art nouveau cathedral is noteworthy for architectural solutions that are still startling today. After more than 120 years of construction, its 8 current towers are a far cry from the 18 that appeared in the original blueprints.
  • Gothic Quarter: the origin of the city of Barcelona. An endless network of intertwining alleys and small squares. The Cathedral of Barcelona and the small palaces that house city hall and the Generalitat (government of Catalonia) are located here.
  • El Borne: another medieval neighbourhood which recently has become one of the trendiest areas in the city. The Picasso Museum and the breathtaking Santa María del Mar church, with its thousands of stained glass windows, are located here.
  • Paseo de Gracia: the most glamorous street in Barcelona boasting the best stores. Among its buildings, Casa Milá (also known as La Pedrera) and Casa Batlló, both by art nouveau architect Antoni Gaudí, are particularly impressive. 

Central Suites Barcelona is located right in the centre of Barcelona, next to Paseo de Gracia, La Pedrera, Casa Batlló and Las Ramblas.
