Born

Fall in love with Barcelona and find accommodation in the Born neighbourhood! Part of the Ciutat Vella district, this is one of the oldest parts of the city, its narrow streets brimming with history and full of art galleries, bars, restaurants and small shops. It boasts plenty of leisure and cultural options, so by booking one of our apartments in the Born neighbourhood in Barcelona you can get a taste of what the Catalan capital has to offer without venturing outside your own neighbourhood.

Its history dates back to the 13th century, when it arose as a modest neighbourhood outside the city walls home to fishermen and stevedores. It wasn’t long, however, before noblemen and merchants moved in to build impressive mansions such as those that line Carrer Montcada, currently home to the Museu Picasso, a must-see for all art lovers with over 4,000 artworks by this superb artist.

Our holiday apartments in the Born neighbourhood offer you the opportunity to discover a whole host of sightseeing routes and visit emblematic places such as the Palau de la Música Catalana, a beautiful Modernista building designed by architect Lluís Domènech i Montaner that can rival anything by Antoni Gaudí. Its stunning facade is matched by its surprising interiors. We recommend you go to a concert there for a magical night out. If you want to enjoy this World Heritage Site, check out our holiday apartments in the Born neighbourhood in Barcelona. We have several right next door!

In this neighbourhood full of contrasts you’ll find balconies overflowing with flowers where the coolest stores jostle with historic buildings. Medieval structures are easily spotted in its winding alleyways, cobbled streets and small squares, alongside innovative restaurants, vintage clothes shops and contemporary art galleries. The Born neighbourhood is also ideal for designer clothes shopping and items that are a cut above what you’d find in the city’s shopping centres.

One of the most charming places in the Passeig del Born. In the Middle Ages, this was home to jousting tournaments, but now it is a great place for having a drink. With a lively nightlife and lots of cocktail bars, it attracts the young and no-so-young alike. If you want to hit the town at night, booking one of our many apartments in the Born neighbourhood in Barcelona is the best way to ensure you have plenty of options right by your front door.

But the Born is about more than partying. You can lose yourself along its narrow streets and go back in time. Inside the Born Centre Cultural, housed in a former market, you’ll find an impressive set of medieval archaeological remains. It also puts on exhibitions and literary and cultural activities.

Another food market that is still very much alive is Santa Caterina. You’ll spot its multicoloured mosaic roof on the outside; inside you’ll find stalls selling fresh local produce you can cook in your apartment in the Born neighbourhood in Barcelona as you discover local flavours.

Another fascinating historical building in this neighbourhood is the Basílica de Santa María del Mar, popularly known as the Cathedral of the Sea. It is a superb example of Catalan Gothic architecture. Its robust exterior contrasts with its delicate interior flooded with light. It dates from the 14th century and, quite remarkably, was paid for and built by the local residents themselves, rather than the nobility, which was the norm at the time. The less well-known church of Sant Pere de Puel•les is also worth a visit. It is located in the Plaça de Sant Pere, a lovely spot to stop for a coffee.

If you’re travelling with kids, two more reasons to book your apartment in the Born neighbourhood in Barcelona. First, the Chocolate Museum is always a hit with children, even though it’s hidden away. Second, the Parc de la Ciutadella, the city’s biggest park, where you can relax, listen to musicians, visit the zoo, take a boat out on the lake or admire the impressive old buildings.

If you book an apartment in the Born neighbourhood you’ll be in an unbeatable central location away from the traffic, since most of its streets are pedestrian. You can easily walk to Barceloneta beach, La Rambla, Plaça de Catalunya and the city centre in under 15 minutes. What more could you ask for?
