What to expect
In the heart of Barcelona, right next to the Gothic Quarter, el Born is Barcelona’s crossroad of fashion, bohemian and historical.
This trendy neighborhood has attracted Barcelona’s best minds in fashion and, inevitably, their retail shops and hip boutiques. It is definitely the place to find unique Barcelona design clothing in any style, from chic or fancy to vintage.
The Medieval Born was the quarter of the guilds, where artisans and craftsmen lived and worked. Today it still preserves the artisan atmosphere and traditional crafts are alongside modern design: ceramics, glass, jewelry, etc.
Take a break in a centenary café, el Born has some of the best chocolates in Barcelona! The incredible variety of restaurants and cafes is also an example of the old and new mix, from traditional Catalan to cuisine d’auteur.
Shopping is an art, discover it with us!

"Guide privée pour voyage solo sur un grand week end de 4 jours à Barcelone" 5/5 stars.
Deux fois 4 heures de visite à pied, en bus, en métro et en taxi avec super Joana, guide aux 7 langues suisso-espagno et plein d'autres encore. Joana est très enthousiaste et communique parfaitement sa passion de l'art. Exercice physique recommandé car stop over pour churos et chocolat chaud fréquents. Charcuteries et patisseries locales entrecoupées de petites galeries d'art et d'artisans des ruelles du Gotic avec en points d'orgue, les must de Barcelone sans faire la queue ! Tout ce que je demandais, quoi …
A recommander pleinement depuis la constitution du programme avec Julia par internet jusqu'aux visites donnant envie de revenir à Barcelone.
