Neighbourhood: El Born / La Ribera
The labyrinth that is El Born becomes most apparent the moment you turn down one of its side streets. But this is one of the few labyrinths you might actually enjoy losing your way in. After all, there are few places that live and breathe such exciting energy regardless of the time of day. This neighbourhood seamlessly transcends the old and new parts of the city, reflected in its vast array of restaurants ranging from fancy Michelin-star establishments to trendy fusion restaurants. Here you'll find historical and cultural attractions such as the popular Picasso Museum and the Gothic cathedral La Santa Maria del Mar, where you just might be able to catch a traditional Catalan wedding.
How to get there
  • Jaume I • 4 min walk

Lovely edifice but too crowded that it looses its charm. We wanted to assist to a ceremony but it was just impossible. Next time I would come back during winter time.

We spotted this odd-looking, flat topped church from the balcony of our hotel and decided to visit. Glad we did! Go in the afternoon when crowds are light. Pay the $15E and get access to the whole place. The gallery has some very old and fascinating artifacts. The floor of the cathedral proper is littered with tombstones with cool markings. The place is ancient. And do try the serial staircase to the roof! Go all the way. You will be rewarded!

Of all the cathedrals we visited in Barcelona, this was an actual 'church.' While historic and built of grey stone, it actually had a welcoming air and without the metal grates and ropes to keep visitors and parishioners at bay, actual felt like a place of worship for people and not just a display piece. The history is fascinating and definitely makes this worth a visit and quiet reflection.

Barcelona has many beautiful places to visit and that is one of the gems in the city is in el born barrio (neighborhood) check the hours before you go, but 80% of the time during the summertime is open almost every day.

soaring, tenebrous ceiling against jewels of high stained glass windows; entrancing, melodious organ music, reverberating....

Inside of this catedral is not so reach as Familia Sagrada but it was build by poor families of Barcelona may centuries ago. If you are not afraid you should climb one of the tower of this church from which you will have great view over the whole city of Barcelona. Michał Dmochowski

The most amazing building I’ve ever seen. Simple as that. The inside is well worth paying for as it’s spectacular. Recommended
