This district of Barcelona is an outstanding for site seeing. There are hidden plaza's and lane ways everywhere you go and it is a pleasure when you get lost as there is a lot to see. Is also blends into the Gothic quarter seamlessly without...More

This was my second visit to Barcelona and first time staying in the El Born area.
So glad we did. It is a gritty, fascinating maze of narrow alleys that open onto bright squares full of restaurants, shops, bars and life! The Picasso Museum was...More
We stayed at the Barcelona Edition hotel in the Born area for 3 days and really enjoyed this area vs. our first few days in the busier La Ramblas area. We loved getting lost in all the little streets in this area and stopping at...More

El Born is a historical neighborhood located in between the Gothic Quarter and Ciutadella Park. El Born is one of Barcelona's most popular neighborhoods. Home to some of the oldest buildings in Barcelona and intertwined with amazing streets and passage ways. Home to amazing culture,...More
The labyrinth that is El Born becomes most apparent the moment you turn down one of its side streets. But this is one of the few labyrinths you might actually enjoy losing your way in. After all, there are few places that live and breathe such exciting energy regardless of the time of day. This neighbourhood seamlessly transcends the old and new parts of the city, reflected in its vast array of restaurants
ranging from fancy Michelin-star establishments to trendy fusion restaurants. Here you'll find historical and cultural attractions such as the popular Picasso Museum and the Gothic cathedral La Santa Maria del Mar, where you just might be able to catch a traditional Catalan wedding.

it really does vary shop by shop. the neighbourhood of el born is one which thrives in the evening, so most do stay open late. in fact barcelona and indeed spain as a country is geared towards staying open late. and it's important to remember that there are a myriad of smaller winding pedestrian alleys with beautiful and unique shops - it's not just the main thoroughfares. so be sure to disappear down some of those quieter looking, nondescript "alleyways" behind the Santa Maria del Mar. i'm not much of a shopper, but never in my life have i stopped and marvelled at so many beautiful shops as i did wandering around barcelona, the gothic quarter and el born especially.
