The neighbourhood: Borne, also known as La Ribera, was originally the artisan quarter of the city. In medieval times, it was the centre of the city’s trade and industry.
In the 13th century Born was connected to the Gothic quarter and its historic walls and its absorption into the centre of the city was complete with the opening in the 20th century of the Via Laietana.
Nowadays it is one of the liveliest and most fashionable neighbourhoods in Barcelona. Designer clothes shops, modern, minimalist restaurants and the latest cocktail bars draw visitors and residents alike to the area’s narrow streets.
