Archway Exit, Barri Gotic, Barcelona

Archway Exit, Barri Gotic, Barcelona [enlarge]

Given the recent success of Barri Gotic streets featured in Barcelona Photoblog I resume today this topic with a beautiful alley streaming into the arcades in the square back there. I wandered through the whimsical labyrinth once woven by medieval architects and fascinated as I was I did not take down notes about the place. After some patient analysis on google maps, I jump to the conclusion that this must be Carrer Tres Llits and that square in the background is Pla├ža Reial. But then again, I am more interested in the architecture and the view. It is always a pleasure to get lost in Barri Gotic during the day. If you are not familiar with the area watch out where you go at night.
