When you go by train to Barcelona, you can stop at the train station at the Passeig de Gracia, this is in the center of Barcelona. It is a big avenue with a lot of mainstream shops, and you will see some famous Gaudi houses. If you follow the Passeig de Gracia towards the coast it will end at the place de Cataluña. Afterwards you will find a little bit right the famous ‘La Rambla’. But don’t waste too much time at the Ramblas, there is so much more to see in Barcelona! At the left of the Rambla is situated the Barri Gotic area, or Gothic Quarter. This is the area in which the old town of Barcelona is situated. It’s generally characterized by narrow cobbled streets with tall old buildings. Picasso lived and worked in Barri Gotic from 1895 to 1904 and Joan Miró was born and lived here during his youth. So you will find museums from Picasso and Miró in this area.
