Believed by many to be the heart of Barcelona, Ciutat Vella, or the Old Town, is primarily made up of four neighbourhoods – El Born, the Barri Gòtic, El Raval and Barceloneta – all of which are full of old world character and are linked by narrow, winding streets.

El Born is the quarter of Cuitat Vella to the right of Via Laietana, stretching from Passeig de Colom up to Plaça Urquinaona. The top of El Born can also be referred to as Sant Pere. Home to the Picasso museum, the newly renovated market of Santa Caterina, the gothic Santa Maria del Mar Cathedral, and a wealth of bars and upmarket boutiques along Passieg del Born, El Born has become one of the most popular downtown places to be.

The Barri Gòtic is the section of the Old Town directly below Plaça Catalunya, between Las Ramblas and Via Laietana. Full of museums, galleries and restaurants and brimming with history and popular bars, the Barri Gòtic tends to be the first stop on most people's itineraries on arriving in Barcelona.

El Raval is one of Barcelona's most up-and-coming central neighbourhoods. It has recently undergone some serious renovation and gentrification, including the opening of a 5 star hotel in the centre of the Rambla del Raval. It is an excellent place to consider when buying property as an investment. 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 and a new university campus.

Barceloneta is the old fishing district of Barcelona and is characterised by low rise, narrow streets tucked in between wide, sandy beaches and the curve of Barcelona's luxury marina, Port Vell. Home to a large part of the yachting community, there is an abundance of authentic old seafood restaurants scattered around the marina. In addition, the large shopping complex of Maremagnum, with its shops, restaurants and discotheques, has also brought new life to Barceloneta, enticing other attractions such as the IMAX and the Barcelona Aquarium.

Due to its close proximity to Plaça Catalunya, public transport in Barcelona Old Town is excellent. There are various bus and metro lines, as well as regional and national RENFE train lines available. Local amenities are also excellent, and the beaches of Barceloneta and Vila Olímpica are nearby.
