Barcelona — Gothic Quarter Details and Fun Photos

Today and Wednesday I’m not going to waste a lot of your time with text, as no matter where you turn in Barcelona’s Gothic Quarter you’re going to find some fun stuff to see and photograph. Take for instance the tiny door pictured below. I positioned Ursula next two if for size perspective. Beyond graffiti decorated doors, there’s just a lot of rich details in this area going back many, many centuries.

Fortunately, the streets were mostly empty. That allowed me to take some great shots without people adorned in bright colors traipsing through the frame. The light rain wetting the streets didn’t hurt, either:

Here we have a rather charming fountain:

Here in the Gothic Quarter you’ll find present day intruding upon the past:

A Touch of Red; A Streak of Green

Beyond that you’ll find fun architectural details around every corner:

I’ll leave you with the following photos until Wednesday’s continuation into the Gothic Quarter:
