El Raval is a true multicultural district, a favourite with artists, bohemians and hipsters.
If you want to be among artists, street art and rich culture, El Raval is the best place to be. For decades, this neighbourhood was known as dangerous, but this changed from the 1990s onwards. Dilapidated blocks were demolished and more and more northern European students, artists and bohemians discovered the neighbourhood. El Raval offers plenty of art and culture, from Gaudí to street art. The square in front of the MACBA contemporary art museum is an important meeting place for skaters. The surrounding streets are home to popular restaurants and quaint shops. The Rambla del Raval is the place to grab a terrace.
