Location

The apartment is located in the heart of El Born, very close to the Ciutadella Park and the El Born promenade, with numerous restaurants, shops and galleries within walking distance.

It is a 10-minute walk from the nearest beach and the nearest metro station is Jaume I.

The old town, or Ciutat Vella, is unique because, unlike other areas of Barcelona, it hosts a mix of different social classes and ethnic groups. It is not unusual to see young entrepreneurs and traditional Catalan families living with international and bohemian families.

The old town (Ciutat Vella) consists of four main districts: the Gothic Quarter, the Barceloneta, the Born and the Raval.

The Gothic Quarter, which includes the Rambla and Via Laietana, is the most tourist area of Barcelona. When the Eixample was built at the beginning of the 20th century, many locals left the neighborhood to benefit from a better quality of life and the area began to deteriorate. However, during the last decades, the Gothic Quarter has undergone a spectacular revamping that has caused tourists to flood it, crimes to reduce and the value of real estate to increased.

The area also has some of the best music venues in Europe, such as the Gran Teatro del Liceo (the Opera House) and the Palau de la Música Catalana, with a spectacular building. You will also find the Picasso Museum and the city cathedral.

Las Ramblas borders the Raval, which is currently going through an important revamping process. With a slightly more bohemian atmosphere than in other neighbourhoods of the Ciutat Vella, El Raval hosts fantastic bars, the MACBA or Museum of Contemporary Art, a new university campus and other places of interest.

At the lower end of the Gothic Quarter you will find the vibrant Born district, full of narrow and winding streets, independent shops, interesting restaurants and historic buildings. El Born borders the Parque de la Ciutadella (where there is the zoo), on the one hand, and the old fishing district of Barceloneta, on the other.

In the last decade, many buildings in the old town have been renovated and currently this area is very popular among investors. Most of the apartments that have been converted into loft spaces retain their original elements, such as mosaic floors, brick walls and exposed beams. On the other hand, many of the buildings have been converted into hotels.

The proximity to Plaça Cataluña makes the old town very well connected to all areas of the city. You will find the metro (L1 and L3), a very wide railway network (FGC, Cercanías, Regionales) and numerous bus lines, among which you will find night buses and the airport bus terminal (Aerobus).

You will find places of interest such as La Boqueria Market, Las Ramblas, Gran Teatro del Liceu, Palau de la Música, Picasso Museum, Cathedral of Santa Creu and Santa Eulàlia, Barcelona Zoo, Chocolate Museum, Wax Museum, Basilica of Santa Maria del Mar, Maritime Museum, Museum of Contemporary Art of Barcelona (MACBA)

The old town houses numerous little independent shops as well as chains such as Zara, Mango, Massimo Dutti, etc., located mainly in the Portal del Ángel and in the streets that surround it. In Born you can find some of the best fashion designers in Barcelona, as well as a large selection of vintage stores, new designer stores and conceptual stores in Raval.

You will also find very interesting bars and restaurants on the Passeig del Born (with its beautiful trees) and the streets that surround it, as well as more established restaurants with avant-garde cuisine such as Comerç 24 and Espai Sucre. La Boqueria, the largest market in Europe, has some tapas bars. If you want to eat fresh fish, do not hesitate to go to the seafood restaurants on Juan de Borbón, in Barceloneta.
