This super-compact penthouse studio apartment for rent on Placeta d’En Marcús is perfect for people on the go. There isn’t an elevator and the staircase is swirling and narrow, so you’ll want to pack light. Otherwise, the apartment is cozy with a rustic flair, and with two beds in a single space, you could easily share it with a friend or two. The bathroom is spacious with a standing shower, and conveniently enough there is a washing machine, along with an equipped kitchen. However, the most outstanding feature is the furnished terrace, where you can spend fun nights chatting and having a barbecue as you look over the city below.
El Born is one of the most exciting neighborhoods in Barcelona. The location puts you smack near the city center and close to some of the most unique architecture in the city. It’s an historical area too, and you’ll find plenty of museums, as well as art galleries where you can wile away your days. The Ciutadella Park is down the street, and aside from tons of stylish clothing shops, and incredible tapas bars, you’re only 4 minutes from the Museum of Chocolate. What could be better than that?

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.
