Ciutat Vella Reviews
Uno dei quartieri più tipici della città con le sue viuzze,i locali di ogni tipo ed i negozi. Sempre molto popolato a qualsiasi ora. more »One of the most typical districts of the city with its streets, clubs of all kinds and shops. Always very populated at any time.
De la Barcelona que conocí, por primera vez, hace casi 30 años... a lo que hay ahora, es como comparar a Miss Universo después de 30 años de cáncer, gangrenas, drogas y cuanto mal se ocurra. Barcelona... more »From the Barcelona I met, for the first time, almost 30 years ago... to what's there now, it's like comparing Miss Universe after 30 years of cancer, gangrene, drugs and how much happens to happen. Barcelona looks sloppy, dirty, dangerous and faded. It seems that so many years of "vision" raged, wreaked havoc on the city and bent on destroying it, year after year. My last time. It's not worth leaving a hard one there. After that, you have to deal with all that foolish, cumalist, hypocritical and ridiculous crap. There are DECENAS of best cities in Spain.
