    What you'll do

    Join your uniquely handpicked Host and explore El Born together, soaking up the unique bohemian atmosphere as you walk through narrow cobbled streets and medieval squares.

    Nestled between Barrio Gótico and the lush Parc de la Ciutadella, El Born is definitely a much loved local barrio. Despite it’s central location on the edge of the popular tourist areas, this barrio has managed to maintain it’s distinctive artsy character and effortlessly combines all our favourite elements of neighbouring Barrio Gótico with a unique and creative vibe. Home to a thriving creative community, the neighbourhood has a laid back, artistic feel that make El Born so cool.

    Are you a foodie? Then your Host will plan an itinerary for you through the best delicatessen, restaurants love by locals, food markets and bars. Or if you are passionate about art there is plenty to be discovered, from El Born’s medieval history and architecture in contrast with contemporary art galleries and modern street art.

    Get to you know your thoughtfully matched Host, and they’ll be able to recommend spots they know you’ll love, so you can eat, drink, shop and party like a local during your trip.
