Ciutat Vella is numbered as the district 1 in the city of Barcelona and, consequently, the oldest and most historic of all. Therefore, it is not surprising that this district is home to many surprises and secrets. Through the following 10 facts, we want to reveal everything that you did not know about this district.
1. This town is not 'beautiful', but 'old'. Mistakenly, many people think that the name of this district means 'Beautiful City', when 'vella' in Catalan actually means 'old'.
6. Ciutat Vella was the entire Barcelona. For a long time, the municipality of Barcelona was entirely known as this district, although later Ensanche and the rest of the other neighbourhoods that make it up were added.
