One day in “El Born”

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
Monday: CLOSED 

 

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.

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]
