El Born, in the Middle Ages, started being the place where celebrations and jousts were held, but little by little, the wealthy merchants decided to build their palaces in the area on streets such as the Carrer de Moncada; today you can still visit some of these houses, like the one that houses the Museu Picasso or the Palau Dalmases. Part of the neighborhood was destroyed in 1714 to make way for the Ciutadella military fortress, from which a few buildings are preserved. The Ciutadella is today an enormous park where people seek to disconnect on weekends. In the daytime you can visit one of the city's most beautiful churches: Santa Maria del Mar, built thanks to the area's businessmen and residents. A novel, La Esglesia del Mar (La Catedral de Mar in Spanish), by Ildefonso Falcones, is set during the period of the church's construction. And at night, thousands of bars and restaurants open their doors to Barcelona's most cosmopolitan and alternative people.
