This cosy and elegant studio apartment is available to rent on Plaça de la Llana in El Born. The immaculately decorated studio comes with an exposed stone wall and wooden beams in the ceiling. There is a balcony overlooking the attractive narrow street, and the apartment also comes with AC. With plenty of furniture, and a floor area of 50 m², there is plenty of room for a couple to live here comfortably.
The brightly painted houses on this quaint narrow street are just a hint of this gorgeous area. Surrounded by little boutique stores, trendy bars, fancy restaurants, and hidden gems of tabernas, there will always be something to discover around the corner in this network of winding streets and narrow alleyways. Here you will be surrounded by culture and history, with ancient monuments rubbing shoulders with museums and modern art galleries, and experiences tate typify Spain, such as the nearby Mercat de Santa Caterina (check out its roof - spectacular!) Add to that that you can walk to the beach in about 20 minutes, and you really are in the best location in the city.

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.
Can I afford it? €€–€€€ (mid-range–expensive)
