A lovely, lively area of Barcelona. A maze of little streets with lots of great little restaurants and bars to try out.

Below the Calle de Princesa as far as the Barceloneta district (where the marina is), El Born is noted for its cafe and bar scene and is a favourite of ex-pats.
I'd recommend visits to the Palau de Musica Catalan, the Picasso Museum, or the Textile Museum or the shops....
We hired bikes from BornBikes which meant we could cover most of the streets, btu we we ate alfresco to keep an eye on them.

A nice and trendy area with lots of little shops and lovely restaurant . But be careful when walking on the street . I got rob and lost my phone here ! My finger was hurt and 3 guys and me chase the thief but he ran too fast and there were too many small street. So just be careful.
