What you’ll do

There must be something in the salty sea air (or maybe in the sangria) - you’ll wonder how so much creative energy, artistic culture and bohemian vibes can come from a neighborhood so small. But let us tell you, it’s true!

You’ll explore this trendy barrio with one of our local Barcelona hosts, and you’ll see for yourself why El Born is said to be Barcelona’s most fashionable and artistic neighborhood. They can’t wait to show you this creative corner of the city which went from being a chilled-out seaside vacation spot to a hip and happening artistic neighborhood.

Wander through the narrow cobbled streets flanked with quirky boutiques, cafes and medieval squares as you soak up the boho atmosphere that engulfs you. From the colorful mural-lined streets to contemporary art galleries, you’ll soon see where this artistic reputation comes from, but if history is more your thing, you’ll love uncovering El Born’s medieval past. Or if you want to just kick back in a crumbling square (all part of the charm) and lazily indulge in some sangria and tapas - well, who’s to stop you, this is your experience.
