Barcelona step by step: Born
The Born neighbourhood includes the area that was once known as La Ribera. It’s something like Barcelona’s own Soho, a place where you can find art, tapas and designer boutiques in a maze of paved medieval streets. Here you will find countless restaurants and cocktails bar, from the classical Xampanyet to the exclusive Coppelia, the leisure options are practically limitless. The quarter is delimited by Vía Laietana, which was built to connect the Eixample to the sea, and Parc de la Ciutadella, the city’s most important park, which connect to the Zoo. Its narrow streets afford a glimpse of gigantic monumentality of Santa Maria del Mar church, better known thanks to the novel by Falcones, the decrepit townhouses of Carrer Montcada, the Picasso Museum and Born and Santa Caterina markets. Closest underground station: Jaume I (L4).
