The fashionable, historic and multicultural El Raval quarter is part of the Ciutat Vella or Old Town district. El Raval is a great lively neighborhood, vibrant with personality, and walking distance to many of the city’s other popular neighborhoods.
The apartment is located on Rambla del Raval, across from the famous statue El Gato by Fernando Botero. This is a central location as it is walking distance to Las Ramblas (the main Rambla), the Parallel theatre district, the port with its Maremàgnum leisure area, the modern art museum MACBA, Plaza Catalunya, the Gothic Quarter and Eixample.
You will not experience a shortage of charming cafes, restaurants and bars, intriguing small bookshops, music shops and galleries, or unique small boutiques selling jewelry and garments made by local artisans. The apartment is also in a strategic position for gourmet guests as it is situated between the markets La Boqueria on one side and Mercat Sant Antoni on the other. The Rambla del Raval and its neighboring streets also have a huge number of very affordable grocery stores and small food shops.
