Shopping in Born

The Soho of Barcelona.

Two words describe this neighbourhood: innovative and avant-garde. The past few years have seen the Born district transform into the city’s fashionable shopping area. It is known as the ‘Bohemian district’, ‘the Soho of Barcelona’ and the ‘trendy neighbourhood’. Here you will find a web of streets, located behind Barceloneta, just a stone’s throw from the beaches. This old neighbourhood combines contemporary establishments, with 19th century historic, Modernist buildings. It is said that the key to this district is the fact that new fashion designers have chosen to establish themselves here. Two of the best things about the shops here are the exclusive shops, specialising in innovative and avant-garde clothing, and the workshops and showcases of these designers, who wish to display their newest creations. From clothing to footwear, you will find some of the most daring and original styles here. But you must remember that this is one of the city’s most expensive areas.
