Yourmedieval home (with added parks)
Trendy. Central. Lively.
In El Born, Barcelona's independent spirit is alive and well. Perhaps that's why it's so popular.
The narrow streets hide oasis-like plaças (plazas). Gorgeous, green Ciutadella park is here. And with ancient architecture, bars, museums and, well, you'll just have to come here.
Find out for yourself.
What can I do here?
Wander the maze-like streets. Get lost. Not too lost, though.
Contemplate the Neo-Mudéjar architecture of the Arc de Triomf. Admire Picasso's early work at the Picasso Museum. (Original name...)
Bar El Born (there's a theme here) is a small, busy bar. The staff are friendly. You'll find a good vibe here most nights. Good pizza and empanadas too.
Go to the old Born market.
It was built in 1876. Today it's a cultural centre. Glass sheets and iron pillars rise overhead. Inside you'll find 2 exhibitions:
Rest your tired feet in opulent Parc de la Ciutadella. It's 280,000 m² of palm trees, stone elephants and Parisian-style glass and iron greenhouses.
Parrots fly overhead. At its heart of the park you will find the Cascada Monumental, a beautiful stepped fountain. Romantic.
Row a boat across the lake, or visit the zoo. Enjoy an evening's walk. Is this the best place in Barcelona to people-watch? Probably.
You can smell the sea here. The beach is close.
What could be better?
Look out for Mamut, the mammoth that lurks in Ciutadella park.
