THE APARTMENT IS LOCATED IN EL BORN AREA IN THE HISTORICAL CENTER:
El Born has grown into being one of the most fashionable places in the city.
El Born isn't just about the nightlife, there is plenty of culture to be had as well. It can be seen that Calle Montcada was also a medieval street, which is now home to the Picasso museum and the Textile Museum which has a great little café with a terrace attached to it. The textile museum is located here because in Born's early days it was home to the textile guilds of Barcelona. There is also a beautiful cathedral which you can wander around in, sometimes even when there is a wedding going on!
Nowadays people are attracted to El Born for the shopping which consists of some beautiful but pricey boutiques and shoe shops which are great to find that one-off piece.
El Born is sandwiched between Via Laietana and Barceloneta and is served by the metro stops Barceloneta and Jaume 1 which are on the same yellow line. Las Ramblas and the very centre of the city are a pleasant 10 minute walk away.
The beach is also just a 10 minute walk away so you can have both a beach holiday and a city break in one. Plus you are quite close to the Parc Ciutadella which is a relaxing place to sit in the afternoon and watch the hippies play their bongos. The Barcelona zoo is also located in Parc Ciutadella.
As you can see El Born is perfect for families as well as tourists. Noise could sometimes be a problem depending on where you are but it's not as bad as in the very centre of town. It is a picturesque and cultural part of the city with a vibrant café culture and bar scene.
The location is just a short walk from the fashionable El Born area including one of the most exciting tourist attractions in the city: the Museu Picasso and the Palau de la Música Catalana, a leading concert hall - World Heritage Site by UNESCO -. Walking to the Barri Gotic is a quick affair and the famous street of Las Ramblas is just 10 min. away on foot. Most of the city's main attractions (including the Gaudí works of Palau Guell, Casa Batlló, Casa Milá and La Sagrada Familia) and relaxing beaches are within walking distance or a short subway ride away.
Regular capacity 4/5 people. Maximum capacity for 5/6 people.
Cleaning fee (apartment, linen and towels). We provide sheets and towels.
A VERY WARM WELCOME TO CATALONIA:
Catalonia is a small country of six million inhabitants but it has more than a thousand years of history and a culture and language of its own which have forged a very distinct character.
Today Catalonia is an Autonomous Community within Spain an occupies an area of 31,930 square kilometers.
The people of Catalonia have always been open to the outside world. We love to welcome foreigners and show them our homeland. And we like them to feel at home among us. Perhaps that is why so many visit us. Every year millions of tourists flock to our seaside resorts without realizing that, a short distance from the sundrenched Mediterranean beaches, there are places of artistic interest, historic buildings and landscapes which are equally well worth seeing.
We hope you find it useful and we wish you an enjoyable stand.
