What you'll do
Nestled between Barrio Gótico and the lush Parc de la Ciutadella, El Born is definitely a much loved local barrio. Despite it’s central location on the edge of the popular tourist areas, this barrio has managed to maintain it’s distinctive artsy character and effortlessly combines all our favourite elements of neighbouring Barrio Gótico with a unique and creative vibe. Home to a thriving creative community, the neighbourhood has a laid back, artistic feel that make El Born so cool.
Are you a foodie? Then your Local Host will plan an itinerary for you through the best delicatessen, restaurants love by locals, food markets and bars. Or if you are passionate about art there is plenty to be discovered, from El Born’s medieval history and architecture in contrast with contemporary art galleries and modern street art.
Get to you know your Local Host, and they’ll be able to recommend spots they know you’ll love, so you can eat, drink, shop and party like a local during your trip.

Your Local host may also suggest adjustments or new routes if they feel that there is something just around the corner that you may enjoy, or perhaps if the weather affects your itinerary.

Explore El Born: Barcelona’s Hip Neighbourhood | BarcelonaReview by: Anastasia K
The CityUnscripted team recommended this experience and it was just perfect for me. With the local host we head into the hip and trendy El Born gothic area, this is the area that locals love, it is not so touristy, it's full of quirky shops and art galleries and cafés etc. I could also pin the Picasso Museum as this is located in this area. Thank you!
