nice shops and restaurants for walking around - day or night- best area to get lost in Barcelona and gateway between old town, commercial and beach areas

If you want to get away from the tourists and find some nice catalan bars to chill out and eat then get out of the gothic area and explore the Born. You'll have a great time and what's more you'll save a lot of money too!

Excellent tapas to be had, and lots of people watching. Visit the local church. Lots of options for eating and drinking. Night life is very busy here. Many tourists, but you definitely get the local flavor just walking around this fun neighborhood.

This is the "locals" side of Barcelona. They've got great souvenir shopping here and as well as cheaper pinchos.

i loved all the small stores i found while walking the parallel streets the paseo del borne is a super nice fresh boulevard, the
stores you still find handmade products, craftmans, creative ateliers, the boehmian and creativity here is amazing, and flats even still hang the cloths outside :-)
i dont remember what i dislike!
