The area surrounding the apartment:
The Miró apartment is situated right around the corner from the famous and grandiose Gothic Cathedral in the most central and most famous part of Barcelona. Guests are literally minutes' walk from the main Square or Plaça called Plaça Catalunya, the famous Las Ramblas, the Gothic Quarter and the trendy El Borne. 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 on Plaça Jaume, which is one block 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.
The Miró apartment is located on the principal or first floor of the building, with no elevator like most other buildings in the Old Town of Barcelona. The entire apartment has been newly renovated with beautiful parquet flooring and clean simple white walls which accentuate the luxury modern furnishings. The living room and dining area are housed in the same room and can accommodate four adults comfortably. The bedroom contains a double queen sized bed with a pullout sofabed in the living room for additional guests. After a hard day of adventuring around the streets of Barcelona guests can come home to sit back and relax while enjoying the use of TV, DVD player and stereo provided in the apartment.
The kitchen in the apartment is modern and fully equipped for your convenience. Commonplace appliances like an oven, fridge, coffee maker, toaster and so on, give the guest more a feeling of home. Pots and pans, plates and cutlery are all ready for use upon arrival. The bathroom has been decorated in luxury fashion with exceptional quality units like the ultra stylish square ceramic sink and mosaic tiled shower units. Bed linens and clean towels and hairdryer are all provided.
Relax in style in this wonderful apartment in the center of everything that old town Barcelona has to offer!
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.
