El Born (or Borne, depending on your coolness level) is one of the most sophisticated and charming neighbourhoods in town, since taking a walk on the narrow pedestrian streets of this central area of Barcelona is always a fantastic experience.
In addition, meandering around. El Born means to keep finding and discovering little treasures constantly: art galleries, museums (like the Picasso Museum or the Textiles and Costume Museum), design boutiques, delicatessen shops, cafés and restaurants filled with history, modern cocktail bars, new places where you can enjoy a wonderful brunch, artisanal jewellery stores… and the list doesn’t stop here.
El Born doesn’t just offer some of the most trendy stores and shops in town and a buzzing night life; behind some of its façades are top quality apartments, luxury lofts and design duplexes that have been renovated and redecorated to the point where anyone who visits them remains speechless.
We have to warn you that, when you manage to get one of those high quality wonders, the decision between wandering around the streets and taking in everything they have to offer, and simply enjoying the comfort of your home, can be hard to make…
Jokes aside, El Born is the perfect choice for those who want to live in the indefatigable centre of Barcelona, enjoy its lifestyle, a bohemian and artistic ambience and, almost, forget about the car (from El Born you can take a walk all the way to the beach).
For those who are looking for more than an experience, buying a property in El Born, a neighbourhood with a constant and even growing demand, is also a good idea. The neighbourhood offers interesting real estate investments;one of the area tendencies is to buy old apartments and remodel them, as stated before, to give them a new life and a higher value.
As it happens in most of the cities, the central neighbourhoods such as El Born, are part of the old town. In this case, the past left us with buildings as historical and emblematic as the old El Born’s Market (now restructured as a cultural centre), the famous Church of Santa Maria del Mar or the Promenade of El Born, where, in medieval times, knights would take part in jousting tournaments and nowadays you can have a drink in trendy terraces.
To sum it up, El Born offers an excellent mixture of history and modernity, and a lifestyle that captivates both locals and visitors.
