Inside Barcelona provided a great apartment for us. Efficient, clean, right size (2 bedroom) and a fantastic location. More important, their staff (thank you Paula) helped us in planning the trip and in the bumps on our trip (US Airways--no thank you). The apartment was very safe, clean and fit our family well (2 parents, 20 year old and 17... More

Staying in El Born / La Ribera

Neighborhood Profile
El Born / La Ribera
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 neighborhood 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.
