The Raval has undergone one of the most amazing transformations since
the 1980’s; well known for it’s overpopulation and less than desirable
residents it was an area to be avoided at all costs.. Riddled with drug
dealers, prostitution and street crime it really has changed incredibly
in the last 25 years or so… it is now a bohemian, alternative and very
Now the Raval barrio is in some parts ultra-hip with lots of cool
stores with avant-garde clothes, residents are young, hard working and
innovative; some of the hottest bars, shops and restaurants are in the
Raval… it has a huge modern art culture and the Raval houses the MACBA,
(Museo de Arte Contemporanea de Barcelona, Museum of Modern Art) and
many art galleries have paid top notch prices to rent space around the
The less desirable residents such as drug lords and common thugs have
to a large extent been eliminated and a large number of immigrants from
Morocco, Phillipeens, Pakistan, Ecuador, India to name some, live in
this neighbourhood and own and run businesses; it makes for an
interesting afternoon to see all the different options for food,
clothes, art, hairdressing or bars…. It is still less polished than the
neighbouring areas such as Gotico and Born, but still popular, modern
and cosmopolitan ……
The Raval also comes with it’s own Rambla; after several residential
buildings were knocked down during the area’s “facelift”, the Rambla
Raval was created, a wide path with palm trees, café terraces and it
even boasts it’s own Botero sculpture of a big black cat….. the Rambla
is used a lot for socialising amongst the local residents and at
weekends there is an interesting “mercadillo artisanal” where anyone
can sample Arabian teas and cakes…..
