One of favorite parts of Barcelona for sure. There's such a unique and amazing vibe all around. This is a great place to wonder around in the heart of the Gothic District.

Another old part of town, Similar like Barri Gotic end surroundings. Lots of narrow streets, interesting but not outstanding buildings, restaurants, small shops.... Nice for a walk, but not a must to see that part of town as well....

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
