The area surrounding the apartment :
The Da Vinci apartment is situated right in the heart of the old town in Barcelona, the Barrio Gotic or Gothic Quater. It is situated very close to one of Barcelona's most distingushed - but least visited - Gothic churches, 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 who congregate to entertain the visitors most days. The area itself, which surrounds the apartment, is a body of pedestrianised interconnecting narrow cobble stoned streets where you can wander around aimlessly for hours imagining how it was back in medieval times. Other areas of interest within walking distance from the apartment are the famous Las Ramblas, the Liceu opera house, the Barcelona City Hall in Plaça Jaume, which is three minutes' walk from the apartment as well as the remains of the old Roman Walls coupled with many more treats from Barcelona's ancient and medieval past. Las Ramblas is another short four minutes' walk from your door, as is the wonderful Gothic Cathedral and the very trendy El Borne area which is full of fantastic one off boutiques!
The Da Vinci apartment is located on the first floor, (in reality a second floor)with NO elevator, in a building with lots of character. The apartment is very large and spacious with five bedrooms and many original art works, specifically made for the Da Vinci, hanging throughout the apartment.
The main bedroom, with a double bed, can be found down the passageway featuring lovely mosaic tile details which combined with the rich dark chocolate brown hardwood floor makes a great feature; this fantstic hard wood floor can be found throughout the apartment. The second, third and fourth bedroom all have two single beds and wardrobe space for your clothes. The fifth bedroom has just one single bed. Each room comes with AC/heat depending on what time of the year you are choosing to visit Barcelona. All the bedrooms have been very nicely decorated.
The living/dining room is a wonderfully inviting area; the focal point is shared by the "L" shaped cream sofa with plenty of cushions and the fantastic mosaic tile design in the centre of the hard wood floor; the area is inviting and relaxing - perfect for watching some TV or a movie on the DVD or just listen to some music. In this area you can also find the dining table and chairs. The kitchen is modern and equipped with pots, pans, sivlerware, plates, cups, glasses, toaster, juicer, fridge, washer, etc.
Both bathrooms come with shower units, toilet and sink, and of course towels, as well as fresh linen, are provided for your stay in the Da Vinci apartment.
This incredible apartment is perfect for a large family group or friends looking for an ideal place to rest in the middle of Barcelona Old Town!

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.
