Enjoy this area during your stay with Habitat Apartments in theire apartments in Barcelona.
The Born was the waterfront neighbourhood. El Born has become one of the most trendy areas of Barcelona in the recent years. The old streets are bursting of chic tapas and cocktails bars, candelit restaurants and fashion boutiques. The area borders the port and the nice beaches of the Barceloneta, the Gothic Quarter, where you will find the cathedral and the outstanding Rambla and the Ciutadella Park, where you may stay in the shade beneath a tree. The neighbourhood contains possibly the most disparate aesthetic extremes Barcelona has to offer: on one hand the Moderniste Palau de la Música concert hall, a jewel of Modernism declared world-heritage site by UNESCO in 1997, and on the other hand the imposing Santa Maria del Mar church, a building of extraordinary beauty and one of the finest examples of Catalan Gothic architecture.
