El Born

Lose yourself in these medieval streets

If it’s independent boutiques, vintage shops, medieval architecture and tucked-away bars you want, El Born is the place for you. Explore the backstreets behind Santa Maria del Mar to find traditional bodegas and shops away from the hustle and bustle, and get a boqueria experience without the crowds at Mercat Santa Catarina. And don’t forget to check out one of Barcelona’s Modernist marvels – the Palau de la Música Catalana.

Top tip:

To shop for local designers, meander around Flassaders and Del Rec streets.
