The Five Instagram-Worthy Spots in Barcelona's Gothic Quarter

March 13, 2022
Barcelona's Gothic Quarter is like a whole new side of the city you don't often get to see. In fact, more than that, this district practically feels like it's in a time of its own. The Gothic style and Medieval touches, many of which have been preserved for hundreds of years, harken back to a time that's long gone, but its spring remains the same. And don't these fascinating corners often make for great Instagram posts. You can even go as far as to say that the Gothic Quarter is the most Instagrammable spot in Barcelona. But these five specific places truly take the cake!

The Five Instagram-Worthy Spots in Barcelona's Gothic Quarter


Pont del Bisbe

When you think of Barcelona's 'Gothic Quarter,' the Pont del Bisbe is often what instantly comes to mind. It's practically the symbol of this central neighborhood, almost like how the Arc de Triomphe is the most famous part of the Champs-Élysées are in Paris or the Brooklyn Bridge represents its namesake borough in New York. That's how famous this small but beautiful bridge is in this part of the Catalan capital. It helps that its design is undeniably gothic, the most aesthetically faithful apart from the churches and historical buildings. There are also many superstitions attached to the place, further emphasizing its mysterious allure.

Barcelona Cathedral

Speaking of the churches in the Gothic Quarter, the famous Barcelona Cathedral will definitely make for an attention-grabbing Instagram post. With its historic grandeur and scenic style, one snapshot is enough to let your followers know that you are having the time of your life in the Catalan capital. But don't just focus on the ornate facade or on its majestic interior! Within the cathedral's cloisters, a gaggle of geese adds a storybook-like charm to the place. It's these fair feathered creatures, wobbling about around the church, that will sparkle in some charm on your Instagram feed.

Plaça de Sant Felip Neri

If Plaça de Sant Felip Neri looks familiar to you, that's because this was where the American rock band Evanescence shot their music video for their 2003 single, 'My Immortal,' which went on to become one of their greatest hits. Lead singer Amy Lee is shown wandering about the historical landmark in a pristine white dress as if she was a ghost haunting this intimate corner of the bustling city. The connection to the iconic music video alone makes it Instagram-worthy, but there's also something so cinematic about Plaça de Sant Felip Neri that is eye-catching enough for social media.

The Royal Square

If you want a more public and bustling area for your Instagram post in Barcelona's Gothic Quarter, look no further than The Royal Square. It's a popular hang-out for both locals and tourists alike, especially since it's lined with stores, foodie hotspots, bars, and other establishments. The palm trees and the backdrop of a classic building set up the coastal atmosphere of Barcelona, while the Gaudí-designed lamposts remind your followers of the city's artistic impact. Coupled with the many locals who frequent this area, this is one of the best spots in the Gothic Quarter that encapsulates what Barcelona is all about into one amazing Instagram post.

The Kiss Mural

Murals are fairly common in major European cities. There are plenty in Paris, Brussels, and of course, Barcelona as well. Here in the city's Gothic Quarter, the famous The Kiss Mural is one that draws in many tourists, eager to take a selfie or to capture this precious work of art. Called “El Món Neix en Cada Besada” (A World is Born in Every Kiss), it's actually a mosaic made up of different little snapshots of acts of love, happy life moments, and more. And while this huge image of two lips kissing feels provocative, it's the heartwarming message behind the artwork that makes it truly Instagram-worthy!
