El Born / La Ribera
The labyrinth that is El Born becomes most apparent
the moment you turn down one of its side streets. But
this is one of the few labyrinths you might actually
enjoy losing your way in. After all, there are few
places that live and breathe such exciting energy
regardless of the time of day. This neighbourhood
seamlessly transcends the old and new parts of the
city, reflected in its vast array of restaurants

Yes, you can visit the Café in the back and still enjoy the architecture but if you want to see the actual main hall with the signature glass drop, you do have to get a guided tour or see a show. Definitely worth visiting... More

When there is a concert the building is open so don't hesitate and walk around. As you sit for the concert, the whole concert hall surrounding is full with Modernista decorations.
