What travelers say:

Catalonia is the main street in Dubrovnik, Croatia. A pedestrian street paved with limestone runs through the Old Town, about 300 meters away from the Old Town, which is surrounded by the walls of Dubrovnik. This avenue became the main passage of the city in the 13th century. Most of its current appearance was created after the devastating earthquake in 1667. Before the earthquake, the design of the houses on both sides of the street was not as uniform as it is today. Many of them have arches. Gallery and exquisite decoration. After the earthquake in 1667 and the subsequent fire, the Republic of Ragusa passed a law which stipulated the layout of all future residential buildings in the city. Therefore, all the 17th-century houses arranged along the avenue are identical. Many historical buildings and monuments in Dubrovnik are along both sides of the Boulevard de Catalunya and are popular boulevard squares for tourists.
