There you can visit the Cathedral, the Pia Almoina or the Plaça del Rei. Not far from this part of town you will find the Ribera quarter that will remind you of Medieval times. Next to it you will find the Plaça del Born (Born Square), where jousts and tournaments used to be held in the Middle Ages. You can then take a walk along Montcada Street and have a look at the countless palaces from the 15th and 16th centuries. The Picasso Museum is located in the same area.
