Barcelona’s Gothic Quarter: a few more Doors

For this week’s Thursday Doors hosted by Norm, I’m revisiting my photos from our trip to Barcelona last September.

How I am looking forward to wandering through the winding alleys of Barca’s Gothic Quarter again, but that’s not for a few months yet.


This magnificent door is, I think, the street door to some tourist apartments:

Shops, restaurants and clubs pull down their shutters when closed. The shutters ALL display graffiti; it is a recognised art form in the Gothic Quarter and you never see an outside door without it:

After dark the clubs open:

This picture was taken by flash after dark when all the trendy shops remain open till late.

Great shots. I really like that last one with the big-eyed fish 🙂

    Thanks Norm. These Gothic Quarter apartments are getting so expensive that locals are complaining that they can no longer afford to live in their own city. It’s such a shame when this happens. It’s the locals who give an area its character. ( well, locals AND doors)

    Thank you. If I was half the age I am, I might have ventured inside!
