The building that houses the Born Cultural and Memory Centre used to be the old Born Market, opened in 1876. It forms part of other architectural masterpieces from a time in its history when Barcelona became part of modern Europe. An archaeological site has been found in the subsoil containing the remains of the outline of Barcelona’s streets and houses in 1700, which are testament both to life in the city and to the consequences of the 1714 siege.

One of the most popular attractions in Spain is the Sagrada Família – a Catholic basilica designed by Catalan architect Antoni Gaudí, who was famous for championing the architectural style known as Catalan Modernism or Modernisme. It has been under construction for over 100 years and isn’t expected to be completed until 2026, yet the originality and grandeur of its design attract over 3 million visitors each year.

The trendy neighborhood of El Born is the perfect mix of old and new, it is truly special. The beautiful facades of the centuries-old buildings contrast with their updated, 21st-century interiors. After all, there are few places that live and breathe such exciting energy regardless of the time of day. Located just inside the busy city center and next to the beautiful Parc de la Ciutadella, life in El Born is never boring. Here, hidden down these backstreets sit some of the coolest spots in the city - clandestine speakeasies, hip coffee shops, trendy concept stores and hipster barbers. All these are interspersed with small art galleries and boutique shops, selling everything from handmade leather shoes and bespoke jewellery to unique fashion. Another lively spot for a night out, the main thoroughfare of Passeig del Born is lined with many different bars - ideal for a cocktail, a beer or a vermouth, with a vast array of restaurants ranging from fancy Michelin-star establishments to trendy fusion restaurants. Tucked in one of the alleyways in a row of conjoined townhouses you’ll find the Museu Picasso, which showcases the artist’s work during his early and final years, and the Gothic cathedral La Santa Maria del Mar. El Born is a wonderful area to get lost in or relax in and have a glass of cava in the afternoon at an outdoor café. It’s also close to Barri Gòtic, another beautiful medieval neighborhood whose streets are lined with Gothic townhouses and Roman walls, all amid the awe-inspiring Catedral de Barcelona, or La Seu. (Try seeing the cathedral at dusk, when there are fewer crowds and the exterior and stained-glass windows are illuminated).
