Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Sadly in barcelona we only have down town free of cars...

The city is full of cars... Hopefully one day...

Your downtown might be the size of Amsterdam.

I may have that all wrong--I'm trying to check the scales...

Amsterdam central, where there are few or no cars, is about forty minutes across on foot, the part in the top of this pic.

Ach...

My town by comparison:

And here's Barcelona:

The part with almost no cars is the old town quartet...

So it is roughly the same... with the difference that the streets are very small is crowded with tourists!!!!

Not only downtown. In Gràcia there are many streets closed to traffic now. Gràcia is like an island, you can walk from Gal.la Placídia to Joanic through nice and quiet small squares and you'll only have to cross two noisy big streets, Gran de Gràcia and Torrent de l'Olla. Have you seen calle Astùries, recently? It's great. No more cars, there either.
