My favorite place to be in Barcelona - Passeig del Born is at the core of the stylish Born district and runs from the Santa Maria del Mar church to Plaça Comercial and the uncovered 17th-century ruins beneath the Born Cultural Center. The Passeig del Born is one of the most popular streets for a weekend stroll, and similarly for congregating on an evening for drinks - the crowds from the small cafes and bars that line it flow freely onto the cobbles. Wonderful atmosphere. Don't miss El Born for at least a coffee if not a whole morning of paper-reading and people-watching. Enjoy!
Born has quickly become my favorite area of Barcelona! It is very alive with a youthful international crowd. Enter one of the nice WiFi equip cafes in this area and you will hear people conversing in a variety of languages. As for nightlife, the bars in this section of the city are alive from early in the evening, great place to go to grab a drink before or after dinner!
At only 7 minutes by foot, for the local people the most charming neighbournd in the historic city, where is Santa Maria del Mar church, paseig El Borne, Picasso Museum where is the best preserved gothic street and another picturesque pedestrian street, with galleries, shops, restaurants and bars.
A little touristic but very beautiful. And it is central to some great shops and restaurants.
For me, one of the most beautiful neighborhoods in BCN, full of very good small restaurants and bars.
Absolutely awesome energy. I could stay in this area for weeks!
