    All the Carrer Montcada and palaces are declared property of National Cultural interest, given the Majesty of the facades, as well as the rich interior of the houses, often decorated with frescoes. It is a street that takes you back to the past and there is always a great atmosphere and people of all countries, highly recommended to take a stroll.

    Excellent choice. SA Ona is more than a beach bar. Very good service and product first. Recommendation: ask the parrillada for two (eating three). Come soon, it fills up fast.

Where to stay in Barcelona

Because the city's metro system makes traveling from area to area relatively painless, you have more flexibility in choosing a place to stay. Barceloneta, the neighborhood surrounding the city beach is somewhat removed from the city center, making its hotels popular with families. Only a 15-minute walk from the center, Barceloneta has a more laid-back beach atmosphere but still offers several restaurants and entertainment options. Farther away from the beach and closer to the city center, El Born is a charming neighborhood well-known for its restaurants and lively bar scene. Eixample is also popular as it is more central and home to some of the city's best shopping and tourist sites, including La Sagrada Familia. For a more traditional experience, consider staying in the Gothic Quarter, the heart of Old Barcelona. This picturesque neighborhood boasts a tight network of historical architecture with boutique hotels and traditional restaurants.
