Neighborhood information

El Born
Your medieval 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:

  • Archaeological remains from 1700 (reservation only)
  • From Stones to People. Learn about local life before the Siege of Barcelona (1713–1714)

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 is 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?

Fun fact
Look out for Mamut, the mammoth that lurks in Ciutadella park.

Can I afford it?

What we liked the most

  • The location cannot be beat: you're in the heart of it all in the center of Barcelona.
  • Many of the bedrooms have exterior balconies, which are ideal for enjoying a Moritz beer or taking in the scene that El Born has to offer.
  • The oven in the kitchen is ideal for those who love to bake.
  • There is plenty of natural light, leaving the apartment bright and airy.

Things to keep in mind

  • This is an 8-bedroom property, so things might get busy! If you're looking for something more quiet, that's something to consider.
