About the apartment
Do you wish to live in the heart of Barcelona in a comfortable and spacious penthouse? Then, you will certainly appreciate this lovely place waiting to become your next home.
This apartment is a masterpiece of innovation and good taste, combining modern elements with classic ones.
Starting with the open kitchen, on a white canvas set by the ceiling and the walls, we have an earthed toned furniture, setting up the space as a modern masterpiece with great equipment for you to use while cooking delightful dishes on any day of the week or when you host an evening for your loved ones. Part of the decoration is the brick wall with a window which lets light propagate inside the apartment.
You can relax on the wide sofa, with a white-ivory shade, chosen to match with the rest of the furniture and give a pleasant vibe or you can opt for the small bar in the kitchen where you can have a nice glass of Rioja wine after a warm meal or a freshly brewed cup of coffee in the morning.
The bedroom has a simple design, with a comfortable bed and light brown parquet which, combined with the white walls enables the light coming from the window. Further, the same bricked wall is positioned here as well, giving the room a more homey feeling. You will certainly find serenity during your evenings here, in the comfort of this setting.
There is a second room which can serve as a bedroom or a study. The immaculate walls and wooden floor will go hand in hand with any decoration you will set here.
The bathroom is a marvellous combination of elements and timeless elements. Three immortal colours predominate here, these being white, embodied in the remarkable walls, brown shaped into stable furniture and black, adding more elegance to an already perfect setting.
You want to enjoy sunny Barcelona or stargaze? Then, on the 30 meters square private terrace that you dispose of, you can open a bottle of cava and enjoy splendid panoramic views of the city or even unwind and sunbathe during the weekend.
About the area
Situated in the historic centre of Barcelona, the historic of the Gothic neighbourhood starts more than 2000 years ago, being steeped in history. The Sant Jaume square which represents now a political centre for the whole city was chosen by Romans as a settlement space in the province. At the moment, here you will find standing tall the City hall and the Palace of the Generalitat.
The whole area of Gothic is charged with history from various settlers. For example, the place has a lot of Jewish history. Throughout the narrow streets of Gothic, you will find many mystical spots. The Bishop’s Bridge for example, built in 1928 has a legend around it saying that anybody who crosses the bridge and sees the hidden skull will be put under a spell.
No need to worry however, since the House of Archdeacon or ‘’La Casa de l’Ardiaca’’ shelters a small mailbox which will instantly lift up the spell if you touch the turtle that decorates the mailbox. There is certainly a magic symmetry between the bridge and the mailbox.
Leaving the legends aside, the Gothic quarter is indisputably a work of art in terms of architecture, restaurants, sights and stores of all kinds. As borders, Gothic has Plaza Catalunya at its north and the sea in the south.
