  • Are yadotte living in the medieval building in Montcada Street. Around the Lake there are museums and art galleries, many tourists are found. Also descend the shades of night, and transforms into Baru district, Montcada Street.

  • Its houses, shops, everything breathes a previous epoch, a certainly busy street by tourists and natives as there are stores that sell its products very spectacular, from sausages of all kinds to nuts that appear to come from overseas right now by a freighter Columbian post. You have your ovens broiler products and bakery of does not is how many decades and the climax is when see exponential the CATHEDRAL OF SANTA MARIA DEL MAR so exposed and trumpeted as a reference point in the city for nearly already dozens of books-a GREAT JOY IN FIRST PERSON-El Barrio del Born has improved a lot!!!!

  • Once it was the main street of El Born (The Ribeira) and this importance is primarily notable today in numerous medieval buildings that preserves (despite many alterations in later centuries), with splendid courtyards; in 5 of these palaces, among them next to each other, there is the Picasso Museum. In the street there are other museums, shops and restaurants (the latter 2 categories concentrated mostly in the beginning and end of the street); Remember that the road connecting la placeta d'en Marcus con El Passeig del Born. There you will definitely go to the Picasso Museum, but in any case recommend a walk on this street, narrow and dark in some places, to admire the different medieval courtyards.:
