Neighbourhood
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 ranging from fancy Michelin-star establishments to trendy fusion restaurants. Here you'll find historical and cultural attractions such as the popular Picasso Museum and the Gothic cathedral La Santa Maria del Mar, where you just might be able to catch a traditional Catalan wedding.

Dear Serpiko, Thank you for your interest in Grand Hotel Central. September is a good month to do both, sight seen and relax by the pool or beach. Temperatures are not extremely hot hence confortable to explore the city or enjoy a cocktail at the RoofTop pool. The beach is located just 10 minutes walk from us and the hotel is also close to many activities such the Gothic Quarter, El Borne district, Market of Boquería, Las Ramblas.,. You can always contact us in advance and help you with tickets, restaurants.. or simply anything you need with assistance. Warmest regards Jaime Estellés
