In the area you will find some fine art galleries, bookstores, museums, restaurants, bars & Supermarkets. It leads to the emblematic MACBA modern art museum (sitting on a nice open square beloved by skateboarders) and CCCB, as well as a beautifully rejuvenated Rambla del Raval, complete with palm trees, benches and Fernando Botero's playful statue The Cat... (for our money much nicer, and certainly much calmer than La Rambla proper!).

It was the best vacations I've ever had!! Pixel is amazing person! Funny, full of energy, great host and a good friend!!! I will go back for sure and will keep this priceless friendship forever!!
Also I fell in love with the apartment from the 1st sigh! It is big, sunny, peaceful and interesting place!!
Thank you so much dear dear Pixel!!!
Awesome place to stay, ideal location, and great hospitality! would definitely recommend it to anyone who are up to knowing local people and hanging out with them!
Great location. Useful kitchen (enormous Samsung fridge-freezer) for experimenting with the stuff you can't resist buying in the Boqueria. You'll need strong knees for the stairs.
Guillermo was a great host, I let him know last minute when I was arriving and he was there promptly to hand over the keys, and was fine about me leaving my stuff there late until the next evening. Simple, clean room in nice old flat, kitchen is a bit basic but the wonderful thing about this place is the location. It's in a little street just off the Ramblas leading to the contemporary art museum and full of typical Barcelona cafes and bars. I'll definitely be booking here when I next return to Barcelona!
The stay at this apartment was wonderful! Very central location, right next to La Rambla and Placa Catalunya. Guillermo was extremely helpful and even provided me with maps on my first day in Barcelona. I will definitely look to stay here again when I go back to Barcelona. Thanks for the great stay!
