is your key to Barcelona’s Gothic Quarter and your
gateway to its nightlife, street life and cultural life. This is the historic heart
of the city. Barcino, the 3rd century BC Roman settlement that gave Barcelona
its name, was founded here.
Today, this labyrinth of narrow backstreets is lined with laid-back bars,
exclusive clubs and lively squares. The original Roman walls and medieval
masterpieces are still here, but many of its landmarks date from later centuries.
One of them is Plaça George Orwell – the site of ESCUDELLERS.
The plaza is now named after the 20th-century British author – famous for
writing Homage to Catalonia, 1984 and Animal Farm – but it has existed
since the Middle Ages. At its center of its bustling cafes and terraces is a
swirling sculpture by Catalan surrealist Leandre Cristòfol.
As you take a walk around the Gothic Quarter today, you can easily imagine
what life was like in the past: the sounds of horses’ hooves echoing in these
small narrow alleys and traders shouting their daily specials. It is an area rich
in history and soaked in atmosphere.
To help keep that spirit of Barcelona alive, Norvet is investing enormous
resources to preserve and restore the old city – and add the best of what
the 21st century has to offer. We are enhancing this beautiful piece of
architecture with cutting-edge construction techniques and new
