Barcelona neighbourhood guide - guide to El Born, La Ribera

You are here: » Barcelona » Neighbourhoods » El Born


El Born
Passeig del Born



El Born, also known as La Ribera


Much of the beautiful gothic architecture in Barcelona can be found in the small neighbourhood of El Born, situated east of Ciutat Villa, on the other side of the busy street Via Laietana.

El Born is known for its bohemian style with many cafes, restaurants and small design boutiques. In recent years, El Born has become one of the most fashionable neighbourhoods in Barcelona.

The street Carrer de l'Argenteria is the artery of the neighbourhood that provides life to the smaller streets. It ends at the square known as Santa Maria del Mar where the mighty Cathedral with the same name rises. On the other side of the Cathedral we find Passeig del Born, a suitable place to stop for a Mojito given that the street is packed with cocktail-bars.

For culture and arts in El Born, visit Picasso Museo on Montcada Street. Every year, this museum is visited by over 1,1 million people.

El Born is only a 10-minute walk away from both Las Ramblas and the beach.



Accommodation in El Born

El Born is a very beautiful neighbourhood in old Barcelona with its bohemian atmosphere and a wide range of restaurants and cafes. This is the ideal place for those who want to combine city life with lazing on the beach.
