The area
Neighborhood: 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.

Carrer Montcada is alleyway in the Ribera district of Barcelona. The Picasso museum is here and the street can be used to get to the Santa Maria del Mar, and that's about it. I'm afraid I disagree with the 5 stars or even the 4 stars, there's really nothing interesting here. Just house, balconies and shops that are ubiquitous to the Gothic quarter and Ribera.

The Carrer Montcada is a nice narrow street in the El Born district. Lined with impressive buildings, it is home to the Picasso museum as well as many grande palazzos or mansions. Highly recommended!

In the old days the Carrer Street was a very important place in Barcelona. The aristocrats and rich people wanted to get a spot there. Now a days all those palaces became in restaurants and gifts shops. In this street is the Picasso Museum.

During our most recent stay in Barcelona, we had been to visit Basilica de Santa Maria del Mar. After leaving the church we took our first walk along Carrer Montcada. This long narrow street dating back to the Medieval Period, is home to a number of buildings featuring some classic and unique architecture.
Among other significant buildings located here are the Picasso Museum, Palau de Dalmases and the Capella d’en Marcús.
We were surprised by how gracious this significant street is and we were happy that we had finally taken a stroll along it.
Well worth a visit!

Carrer Montcada is one of the best known gothic streets in Barcelona, narrow and framed by two lines of nobiliar palaces built in XIII-XVI century. I can remember Palau Dalmases, where actually you can see flamenco shows every day, with its wonderful patio, Palau Cervellò and Palau del Marques de Lliò, that hosts the Museum of the Cultures of Mon, very interesting. Inside the Berenguer Palace there's the Picasso Museum. You have to walk along Carrer Montcada if you're visiting the Gothic Barrio!

Carrer Montcada is a long and beautiful street lined with buildings of all types of architectural styles including Medieval, Gothic, Baroque and Renaissance.
The building along this narrow street and area are superb including Santa Maria Del Mar Church,Picasso Museum,Capella D'En Marcus and many many more building ,it's certainly got some serious history attached to it, dating from the 12th century, the rich merchants and noble class built their palazzos and town houses here .
There's innumerable shops ,cafes and restaurants on the street and in the area ,it's a wonderful place to visit,always busy with both locals and tourists alike, it's just a cool place to hang out.
Well worth checking out.

This is a charming street that runs along the Picasso Museum and ends at the back of the Basilica de Santa Maria del Mar. If you are super short on time in Barcelona and do not have the luxury to explore the vast Gothic Quarter, this one street, paired with the Picasso Museum which is housed in medieval constructs itself and Santa Maria del Mar, might give you a sense of seeing Barcelona’s well-preserved medieval ambience. The street was established in the 12th century, using the same path as the Roman access route between the port and the city gates. The peak of palace-building along the street was in the 13th and 14th centuries with nearly constant renovations and preservation projects onwards through time. By 1947, the street was declared an artistic-historical heritage site and the Picasso Museum was established in the 1960s. If you decide to visit the museum, you might book in advance to skip the line. And, while you wait for your timed reservations, there are plenty of small shops to visit on the street for quick souvenirs, as well as some decent ice cream shops!
