PETRITXOL

 

 

 

One of the most iconic side streets in the Gothic Quarter. Running a length of 120 metres, it joins Plaça del Pi with carrer Portaferrissa. It has the honour of having been the first street in Barcelona to be pedestrianised and is always busy. The street was closed to cars in 1959 and its walls boast a number of ceramic plaques or wall tiles which spell out messages of a public-spirited nature.
