The area surrounding the apartment:
The Picasso apartment is situated in the heart of the Borne which is the trendy and upbeat part of the Old Town in Barcelona. It lays right next to the Gothic quarter of Barcelona. This is the oldest part of the city and the site chosen by the Romans during the Augustus Empire (27 to 14 B.C.) to found a new colony. The Barrio Gótico contains a concentration of medieval Gothic buildings only a few blocks northeast of Las Ramblas. It is a maze of interconnecting dark streets linking with squares, and there are plenty of cafés and bars. The apartment itself is close to Paseo del Born which is 50 meters to the amazing gothic church of Santa Maria del Mar, the Picasso Museum, the Cathedral and the port.
The apartment building has been renovated to strict rules and guidelines which conserves the historic facade of the ancient gothic quarter. The apartment itself is located on the first floor which leads out to a double balcony onto the quiet gothic street below. With a large open plan layout and the distinct features like the exposed walls and authentic wood ceilings, any guest can relax after a day of adventuring through the narrow cobbled stone lanes of the old town. The bedroom accommodates two single beds which can be reconfigured to make up a queen sized bed. The living room contains a comfortable double pullout sofabed.
The kitchen has been newly installed and is fully equipped with vitroceramic counter tops, and all the commonplace items like oven, fridge, microwave, pots, pans, coffee machine, fridge etc. The bathroom comprises of a bath/shower unit and is stylishly decorated with mosaic tiling. The whole apartment is fitted with air conditioning (hot/cold) and guests can be entertained by the TV, DVD and stereo. All linens and towels are provided as well as an iron and ironing board.
Whether you are here on business or on vacation, staying at this apartment will make it a memorable visit.
El Born is one of the trendiest neighbourhoods in Barcelona and has become even more so over the last few years, combining a perfect balance between historical treasures, culture and “coolness”; an area very much sought after by the locals as well as the visitors. This area also boasts some of the highest property prices in the city …. This wonderful neighbourhood is full of many great bars, cafes, restaurants and is especially great for one of a kind boutiques as well as other, very well known clothing brands, such as Custo. The Born area is in such a great location, close to the Old Port and the beach, it’s surrounded by all the other cool and interesting places in Barcelona such as Barrio Gotico, Barceloneta, Old Port and Via Laietana. The Park Ciutadella is also a quick 5 minute walk from this area, perfect for a long stroll after a lovely lunch in one of the many terraces the Born has to offer.
A main feature of this great area is the wonderful basilica Santa Maria del Mar, right in front of this magnificent landmark, Barcelona’s guests can enjoy tapas and wine and watch the world go by…Other spots not to miss include Paseo del Born which is full of great bars and makes this area a lively night spot; not far from here is the Picasso museum….. The Born also has it’s own market, Santa Catarina with it’s funky, bright coloured roof. And finally not to be forgotten is the fantastic Palau de la Musica, which is possibly the most dazzling work of modernist architecture present in Barcelona….
