Passeig del Born, Barcelona

4.2
The cafes of Passeig del Born teem with activity day and night. The Born Market lies at one end of the neighborhood's pedestrian walkway. Start your tour there to stroll the stalls, then make your way up the passage. The architecture on the walkway retains a medieval grandeur from a bygone Barcelona, and the shading from the tall trees in the center gives it a romantic ambience. At the end of the pedestrian path is the church of Santa Maria del Mar, where musicians play on the steps and couples stop to take in the scenery.

  • Medieval walk in the District of la Ribera (Ciutat Vella district) between the old born market and the Church of Santa María of the sea. Tournaments have been held since the 13th century, festivals, fairs and other activities, already in the 16th century executed those convicted by the Inquisition. Although they say it was the main square of Barcelona in late 17TH century and early 18th. Most of the buildings were rebuilt or renovated during the 18th and 19th centuries, notably the "House Mecca" and numerous buildings classified as cultural property.

  • The former main market of Barcelona rises at the end of Passeig del born. A round wrought iron construction. At the beginning of the 1970s the market was abandoned and should be turned into a library. These archaeological remains have been found. A visit is worthwhile even with children.
