Passeig del Born, Barcelona

4.6
The cafes of Passeig del Born teem with activity day and night. The Born Market lies at one end of the neighborhood's pedestrian walkway. Start your tour there to stroll the stalls, then make your way up the passage. The architecture on the walkway retains a medieval grandeur from a bygone Barcelona, and the shading from the tall trees in the center gives it a romantic ambience. At the end of the pedestrian path is the church of Santa Maria del Mar, where musicians play on the steps and couples stop to take in the scenery.

  • This road connects the Cathedral of the sea with the old covered market of Born. The quiet and charming in the morning.

  • This “passeig” is an old place worth visiting. You can see all the stores how they were many years ago but once you walk in they have been updated. If you like to go for walks and discover new things ...  more »
  • This road leads into the vicinity of the Catedral del Mar, a quiet street populated by tourists, but nothing which I believe

  • A pretty promenade with a nice atmosphere at night. On Catalan independence day this place is the heart of all manifestations.
  • Before it was the main square of Barcelona

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.
