Before & After

Escudellers 44 is your key to Barcelona's Gothic Quarter and your gateway to its nightlife, street life and cultural life. This is the historic heart of the city. Barcino, the 3rd century BC Roman settlement that gave Barcelona its name, was founded here.
Today, this labyrinth of narrow backstreets is lined with laid-back bars, exclusive clubs and lively squares. The original Roman walls and medieval masterpieces are still here, but many of its landmarks date from later cen- turies. One of them is Plaça George Orwell – the site of Escudellers 44.
The plaza is now named after the 20th-century British author – famous for writing Homage to Catalonia, 1984 and Animal Farm – but it has existed since the Middle Ages. At its center of its bustling cafes and terraces is a swirling sculpture by Catalan surrealist Leandre Cristòfol.
