Barcelona step by step: Raval


The Raval neighborhood can be found going down on the right side of the Ramblas. Its history is not a particularly elegant one. It went from being a red-light district and thought it has not yet completely recovered the fact is that it is on the way up. Nowadays it is a lively multicultural neighborhood that may well offer some stiff competition to the Born in the chic stakes in a few years. The Liceu opera house and the Boqueria market are long standing landmarks, but the arrival of the MACBA (Contemporary Art Museum) was a significant event in the quarter’s history. The Rambla del Raval, its main avenue, offers stark contrasts, from the upmarket Barceló Raval Hotel’s restaurant B-Lounge to kebab joints like Bismillah Kebabish. And all the streets that delimit the area are worthy of mention: Pelai, The Ramblas, Drassanes and Paral.lel. Metro: Liceu.
