The Gothic Quarter is the oldest nucleus of the city and its historic center. Formerly it was known as the «Cathedral neighborhood». Currently pieces of the first wall are preserved in the Plaza de la Seo and places as iconic as the Plaza de San Jaume, which includes the House of the City and the Palace of the Generalitat of Catalonia, the Plaza Reial, Plaza del Rey and the Church of San Felipe Neri.
