Features
Free, Popular with locals

This is the most historically relevant of all of Barcelona's neighborhoods—not to mention the most beautiful to visit. Most of the buildings here are centuries old and have no elevators; many streets are so narrow that there is a no-cars-allowed policy in most of the area. The Catalan resistance in the 1714 war is reflected in sites like El Fossar de les Moreres and El Museu del Born. As well as being home to the breathtaking Gothic Cathedral of the Sea (Santa Maria Del Mar), El Born is packed with delightful little restaurants and designer boutiques.
