There is so much beauty in discovering a new city by wandering aimlessly through the streets.
Barceló Hotel Group details how getting lost in the El Born neighborhood in Barcelona, Spain is well worth your time.
With music, arts, restaurants, theaters and museums, there is so much to so experience in Barcelona.
Stay at the Barceló Raval and then go out and explore El Born and its lovely charm.
The narrow streets can transport you back to the Barcelona of old. Per a Barceló blogger, “known by some of the locals as La Ribiera, it is ten minutes away from the famous La Rambla and it was a place for jousting during the Middle Ages.”
Now it’s quite the hip neighborhood, with great spots like Palau de la Música Catalana and Mercat del Born to take in the arts.

Additionally, El Born is known for its small stores, where travelers can find deals on exceptional gifts, such as home décor and special tasting glasses.
If shopping isn’t your thing, though, hop into one of the many bars in the area for a quick snack and a delicious beverage.
