El Born, as well as the Gothic Quarter of Barcelona, belongs to the Old Town. This is a charming old neighborhood with many narrow streets, walking along which you will encounter a variety of trendy designer shops, cozy bars and cafes, will be able to visit the Picasso Museum, the Palace of Catalan Music, a majestic Cathedral of Santa Maria del Mar and the second largest market of Santa Caterina.
Born is located between the streets of Via Laietana and Ciutadella Park, to the sea from here you can walk 15 minutes. The central streets of the quarter are boulevard Paseo del Born and streets Argenteria, Princesa and Montcada, which is always crowded in the afternoon, and at night drunk, noisy and fun. The historical quarter is the merchants, artisans and guilds of the city.
We recommend to go to Bourne for original designer clothing and other colorful trinkets, and after shopping drink and a meal in the fashionable restaurant or enjoy contemporary art in one of the local art galleries. Just take a walk or lie down on the grass under the sun recommend at the Citadel Park, an oasis in the middle of Barcelona, which is very green and beautiful. It is also the Barcelona Zoo.
