El Born is one of the trendiest quarters in Barcelona. It has museums, vintage clothing stores and a lot of places to go for tapas.
Walking around El Born aimlessly is a pleasure. Its narrow streets and its environment are worth seeing.
A very typical route to experience the best in the neighborhood of El Born is the next:
You start the route from the Palau de la Música. We recommend you visit it inside and out. There are guided tours inside the Palace in Spanish and English. Be sure to circle the building because the front is admirable from all parts. Then walk through medieval streets near Sant Pere Mes Alt Street, full of alternative shops, and you will find the Church of Sant Pere, a former monastery Benedictine located in La Plaça Sant Pere.
After visiting the church and stroll a little small and traditional neighborhood streets, you will come to Santa Caterina market. This market is particularly appreciated for their colors. Go visit and take the opportunity to buy some snack
Keep walking through the streets and make sure you get to the church of Santa Maria del Mar, now known as the “Cathedral of the Sea” because of the famous book written by Ildefonso Falcones. It is one of the most beautiful churches in the city. Dedicate some time to visit it inside and out.
Upon leaving it, all around Santa Maria del Mar is full of tapas bars and skewers It’s time to fill your stomach!
