The area surrounding the apartment:
The Botero apartment is situated right in the heart of the old town in Barcelona. This is the area that fell within the medieval walls and, until 150 years ago, made up the entire city of Barcelona. The area that surrounds the apartment is a body of interconnecting narrow cobble stoned streets where you can potter around for hours and explore the shops and restaurants. Only a short walk from the apartment you will find the superb food and produce market called La Boqueria. Areas of interest within walking distance from the apartment are the famous Las Ramblas, the Liceu opera house, the Barcelona City Hall in Placa Jaume, the grandiose Gothic Cathedral, the remains of the old Roman Walls along with many more treats from Barcelona's ancient and medieval past.
The Botero apartment has been completely renovated and modernized while carefully conserving the original charm of its 19th century architecture. This 1st floor apartment (with no elevator) is perfect for a couple, a couple with a child or two, or two couples. The bedroom contains a queen sized bed and living area of the apartment provides the guests with a pullout sofa for two additional persons.

The Barrio Gotico or Gothic Quarter is the heart of old town Barcelona and one of the best preserved medieval quarters in Europe, with various Roman remains to be found. The area itself is a body of pedestrian, interconnecting, narrow cobble stoned streets where you can wander around aimlessly for hours, taking in all the wonderful bars and cafes, restaurants and shops… as well as Barcelona’s very famous “La Catedral” (gothic cathedral) which is magnificent and a must see for all visitors. There is another very distinguished - but less visited Gothic church in this area also, the Santa Maria del Pi. The quiet and attractive Plaça del Pi in front of the church is filled with bars and restaurants with outside seating where a cup of coffee goes down well while watching the quirky street performers which congregate to entertain the visitors most days.
The Municipal government (Ajuntament) and Catalan regional government (Generalitat) are in this area standing opposite each other. Within walking distance from the Gothic Quarter are the famous Las Ramblas, the Liceu opera house, Barcelona City Hall in Placa Jaume, as well as the remains of the old Roman Walls coupled with many more treats from Barcelona's ancient and medieval past.
Plaça Reial is a well known spot, popular for it’s bars and restaurants and visitors can enjoy outdoor meals in one of the many eateries to be found, (beware of pickpockets!!)… Here we find the only work a young Gaudí designed for the city council, the Tres Gràcies fountain in the centre and lamp-posts around the plaza…
Although the Gotico is not as incredibly “cool” as the Born or as bohemian as the Raval, it is nonetheless an essential port of call.
