Good shops, fantastic food and very good ambiance both day and evening. We enjoyed walking around finding new squares and quirky cafes.

Even if is less monumental than the Gothic, the Born is our favorite quartier in Barcelona, is more charm especially when the sunset comes. It is fantastic to walk in the medieval streets and more on the top side of the quartier which is sometimes...More

Another look in the city, a great place to wander around looking at the architecture and stopping anywhere for tapas and a caña (draught beer), clarita (beer with lemonade) or even sangria. Small streets, some places to shop and lots of things to see, including...More

Walked through here to get to the Picasso Museum. Absolutely charming. Stopped at a fabulous restaurant for tapas and sangria and then a few hours of wandering and shopping. Definitely plan on a return visit and more exploring.

Its location is unbeatable. It is fun and has great restaurants with a lot of variety. I recommend visiting it in September which has a spectacular climate and with many things to do.

We were lucky to be staying in the Gothic Quarter just 10 mins walk away from here. Interesting to see what was uncovered. The audio tour assisted us understanding. Easy walk. Cost 7 euros which included audio guide.

El Born is one of my favorite neighbourhoods of Barcelona: you can wander for several hours in the small streets, admire the architecture, the street art, shop in local designer boutiques, and of course stop for a drink or tapas!

Picasso Museum is here and there is plenty to see and eat all around the area. Visit the Catalan government building, the Basilica de Santa Maria del Mar, and the many stores and restaurants.

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

Mercer House in El Born. Transportation to and from the airport in Barcelona is cheap and easy. You can take the airport bus into the city for $6.

We stayed at Inside Barcelona Apartments Mercat, which is smack bang in the middle of El Born, overlooking the old market. Perfect location and a really awesome apartment!

Can't remember now but check out Rick Steves travel book on Barcelona. We did the walks he laid out and they were terrific. He suggested restaurants along the way and the different sites we passed.
