Imagine a mixture of Medieval, Gothic and Modernist roads and monuments, the best wines you can find and a sophisticated and cosmopolitan atmosphere. This is the Born neighbourhood. Like a continuation of the Gothic Quarter, this area is found on the other side of Laietana Street.Born is the ‘coolest’ area in Barcelona, particularly when it comes to leisure and fashion. Luxury shops and businesses have set up shop in the streets here, including the Custo designers. In Montcada Street, just before the Picasso Museum, El Xampanyet welcomes you to one of the best places to sample cava in the city. The 15th century Church of the Sea is located at the heart of the neighbourhood. It was traditionally known as the ‘village church’, as the upper classes would attend mass at the Cathedral. At night, its streets are filled with sounds from bars and terraces, where wine flows just as easily as conversation.
