Admire the beautifully constructed iron El Born, which represents the beginning of modern Catalan architecture. Once a prominent marketplace, the center sits above recently discovered city ruins and now houses a museum and cultural center. Tour the 18th-century archeological remains of the La Ribera neighborhood to learn more about the destruction of the city during the War of Succession. Visit the center’s permanent exhibit of 18th-century artifacts found in the archeological excavation. Wander through the surrounding neighborhood for an eclectic mix of shops and restaurants.
