Located on a street with character, acquired over the years thanks to the growing number of little shops which have stood the test of time. The little, local shops are a pillar of this community. The part of the street where this property is found is a slice of history in itself. The small local shops have faced many social and economic changes which have shaped them and forced them to reinvent themselves to exist alongside more modern, luxurious shops.
The Old Town (Ciutat Vella) can be divided into four main districts: the Gothic Quarter (Barrio Gótico), Barceloneta, El Born and El Raval.
El Barrio Gótico is located between Las Ramblas and Via Laietana and is Barcelona's most touristy area. When the Eixample was built in the 1900s, many residents moved out of the Barrio Gótico to take advantage of the better quality of life and the area became neglected. Over the last decade or so however, the area has undergone a massive regeneration which has seen the tourists flood in, crime go down and the value of properties rise.
The area also boasts some of the finest music venues in Europe including the Gran Teatre del Liceu Opera house and the stunning Modernista Palau de la Música, as well as the Picasso Museum and the city's main Cathedral.
Las Ramblas merges into El Raval, which is currently undergoing some major renovation and gentrification. With a slightly more edgy, bohemian vibe than the other quarters of the Old Town, El Raval is home to some great bars, the MACBA Contemporary Arts Museum, a new university campus and several other places of interest.
At the lower end of the Gothic Quarter you'll find El Born, Barcelona's trendy vibrant quarter with its maze of narrow winding streets, independent shops, exciting eateries and historical buildings. El Born borders the Park Ciutudella (home to the city's zoo), on one side and the former fisherman's quarter Barceloneta, on the other.
