The Costa Brava/Catalonia/Barcelona region
Barcelona is a cosmopolitan city, which the Mediterranean opens to the rest of the world, establishing a bond with other cultures and producing a history marked by diversity.
Magnificent examples of artistic trends throughout the ages can be found here providing a great Romanesque, Gothic and above all Modernista legacy, the latter represented by the work of architectural genius Antoni Gaudí.
Built on top of a medieval area of jousts and celebrations El Born has grown into being one of the most fashionable places in the city.
Every day the cafes are packed and at night people move along to Passeig de Born. It is also a very rich cultural neighbourhood: Calle Montcada is a medieval street, now home to the Picasso museum and the Textile Museum which has a great little café with a terrace attached to it. There is also a beautiful cathedral.
This is also a busy shopping area with beautiful trendy boutiques.
El Born is located between Via Laietana and Barceloneta and is served by the metro stops Barceloneta and Jaume 1 which are on the same line. Las Ramblas and the very centre of the city are a pleasant 10 minute walk away.
The beach is also just a 10 minute walk away so you can have both a beach holiday and a city break in one. Plus you are quite close to the Parc Ciutadella which is a relaxing place to sit in the afternoon and watch the hippies play their bongos. The Barcelona zoo is also located in Parc Ciutadella.
El Born is perfect for families as well as tourists. It is a picturesque and cultural part of the city with a vibrant café culture and bar scene.
