The Barri de La Ribera is a part of the Old City (Ciutat Vella) of Barcelona. Many of the buildings of this neighborhood date back to Medieval times and is littered with narrow streets and passageways that lead to countless bars, restaurants and shops. This...More

Another old part of town, Similar like Barri Gotic end surroundings. Lots of narrow streets, interesting but not outstanding buildings, restaurants, small shops.... Nice for a walk, but not a must to see that part of town as well....

This is another old quarter right next to Barri Gotic and almost as interesting. A little less beautiful in my opinion, and less central so it's better to take a hotel in Barri Gotic, but still lots of attractions, and it's great to walk around.

The old city in Barcelona is so wonderful. Also La Ribera - El Born - the neighborhood between Barri Gotic and Parc Ciutadella. You can walk around here in many hours.

The very best part of old town in Barcelona. Go away from the touristic gothic quarters, cross Via Laetania and then get lost (keep a little left first). It's so much to see and just to soak in the atmosphere at night with all the...More

The Barrio de la Ribera is the area around the Picasso Museum and has many narrow streets. There are many small interesting stores and many places to eat. This is a place to explore.

El Born / La Ribera
The labyrinth that is El Born becomes most apparent
the moment you turn down one of its side streets. But
this is one of the few labyrinths you might actually
enjoy losing your way in. After all, there are few
places that live and breathe such exciting energy
regardless of the time of day. This neighbourhood
seamlessly transcends the old and new parts of the
city, reflected in its vast array of restaurants
