El Born is a neighborhood that dates back to the 14th century, and today this is a trendy area, known for its laid-back vibe. Located between El Gòtic and Parc de la Ciutadella, not far from the beach, you will find many hip restaurants, small designer boutiques, and trendy patios here. Discover Museu Picasso and the beautiful Santa María del Mar church in the maze of medieval streets. The old market hall reopened in 2013 under the name El Born Centre Cultural. It offers a fine display of Catalan nationalism. Today the locals buy their fresh produce under the undulating mosaic roof of the renewed Santa Caterina market.
