This carrer has extremely much to offer. Both the buildings and the atmosphere in itself. But also the museums, especially the Picasso museum, the cafes, especially the El Xampanyet and the shops

During our most recent stay in Barcelona, we had been to visit Basilica de Santa Maria del Mar. After leaving the church we took our first walk along Carrer Montcada. This long narrow street dating back to the Medieval Period, is home to a number...More

A very old narrow street, which history goes back to the 12th century, with many fine palaces, nice windows and balconies and a lot of details you can admire. It is truly an atmospheric street with a scent of medieval life.

We went to see the Museum of World Cultures and the Museo Europeo de Arte Moderno, which are adjacent to the Picasso Museum. This area has very narrow streets but is quite interesting, and it has some very good stores.

Carrer Montcada is one of the best known gothic streets in Barcelona, narrow and framed by two lines of nobiliar palaces built in XIII-XVI century. I can remember Palau Dalmases, where actually you can see flamenco shows every day, with its wonderful patio, Palau Cervellò...More

El Born / La Ribera
The labyrinth that is El Born becomes most apparent
the moment you turn down one of its side streets. But
this is one of the few labyrinths you might actually
enjoy losing your way in. After all, there are few
places that live and breathe such exciting energy
regardless of the time of day. This neighbourhood
seamlessly transcends the old and new parts of the
city, reflected in its vast array of restaurants
