The Top 10 Things To Do And See In El Born

Mirva Kemppainen

El Born is an old craftsmen area that is nowadays one of the trendiest neighborhoods in Barcelona. The area has a unique feeling to it. There are tons of hip bars and concept stores to be found in the narrow streets and beautiful small plazas. Located in between the park of Ciutadella and Gothic quarter, and relatively close to the beach, El Born is in the heart of the city.

1. Museu Europeu d’Art Modern


The Modern Art Museum is easily overshadowed by the Picasso Museum located on a nearby street, but this is undeserved. This museum offers changing exhibitions, fresh artists and thought-provoking pieces of art. Their collection includes figurative art instead of abstract, which makes the museum stand out from other contemporary art museums. A must-see for anybody who likes contemporary art and would like to gain a new perspective on the subject. © Radiuk/Wikicommons
