05 May One day in “El Born”
El Born is a really cool area. You can walk around here just to feel the atmosphere of the bohemian people, go shopping in special and unique stores and also just relax on a coffee shop or a restaurant and watch all the beautiful people around you. It’s always crowded in el Born but in a good way, everybody enjoys el Born.
If you are up for some cultural you should go visiting the Museo de Picasso. Arrive early because it is a great place to have a walk among the art and during the day it will become a big line outside the museo de Picasso.
Carrer Montcada, 15-23, 08003 Barcelona
Tuesday to Sundays: 9am to 7pm
When you are finished there you don’t have to go far to see an old, amazing church, Santa Maria del Mar, next to a square where you can have a pause. The church has been there for ages, even during the Spanish wars. Outside on the side of the church it’s a torch that’s always burning, day and night, to honor the victims from the Spanish wars and you can read about it under the torch.
Plaça de Santa Maria, 1, 08003 Barcelona
If you would like to have a break and get something to eat we highly recommend La Luna. They have big delicious tapas.
A few meters from the church you will find El Born Centre Cultural and it is an exceptional place with a history of three centuries. Under this marketplace lies the Barcelona of 1700, a city that suffered the siege of 1714 and was restored three centuries later.
El Born CC shows the remains of the neighbourhood ruined by King Phillip V of Spain. This place is open to everyone and offers a program for visitors to reflect and think about the past, present and future of Barcelona and Catalonia.
Afterwards you can have a really nice walk around Parque de la Ciutadella. If the sun is shining you should rent a boat and go for a ride in the pond!
And when you go out the other side of the park you will find Arc de Triomf.
You can’t visit Barcelona without seeing all of this![/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
