Ribera is incredible. You need a certain amount of days to really get a feeling for it though, as it is interveined with so many narrow alleys and streets buzzling with bars, pretty boutiques and great restaurants. Every time you take a different turn then before you are amazed at what you find. The main streets are quite touristic while... More

Also known as the 'Shore' it is an area of the old city of Barcelona. A lot of the buildings date from late Medieval times.

I loved this area of Barcelona. There are lots of lovely restaurants,bakeries and shops here. They are all tucked away in lovely little streets. The atmosphere is one of the best in Barcelona.

My wife and I went into the Barri de La Ribera on our way to the Picasso Museum on the Sunday afternoon of our visit to Barcelona. This is a very gritty neighborhood. You have to be on your guard here even during the daytime.

There are some interesting places to visit in the Barri de la Ribera. The Basilica of Santa Maria del Mar is one of the most beautiful churches in Barcelona. Then there is the Museu Picasso, and across from it is the Museu Barbier-Mueller d’Art Precolombi.
