Barcelona gothic quarter: Calle Tallers

Barcelona, Spain 🇪🇸

Barcelona is not exactly a small city. Nor does it reach the size of the big European capitals. Despite this, some of the streets of Barcelona have managed to gain a place in the hearts and minds of hundreds of thousands of people who visit them every year. Let's discover here one of these streets particularly known to all Spaniards and undoubtedly beyond the borders of the country .

La Calle Tallers is one of the old medieval streets of the city of Barcelona. It is located in the Gothic Quarter, in the northern part. It is a street full of stores that was once, as its name suggests, the street of iron and wood workshops. Today, alternative stores have taken over, such as piercing and tattoo centers, a store selling old vinyl, second-hand clothes, skateboard and surf shoes and, in the middle of all this extravagant and trendy atmosphere, there are old stores that have been handed down from generation to generation, such as an old tobacco shop and a haberdashery. This famous street has kept all the charm that made it famous. Many alternative punk stores bring together vintage and gothic style around old records, musical instruments as well as bars and pubs for all tastes. Calle Tallers is one of the alternative options to the other streets of Barcelona and it is essential to experience it day and night.
