The area surrounding the apartment:
The Manel apartment is situated literally steps away from one of Barcelona’s most distingushed Gothic churches, the Santa Maria del Mar, in the center of El Borne or Born. The Born district is an intricate maze of narrow, medieval streets where you will find lots of trendy boutiques and great bars, cafés and restaurants. Another option for the visitor staying at this great Barcelona apartment is to visit the Gothic quarter situated right in the heart of the old town and about a ten minutes’ walk from the apartment. This is the area that fell within the medieval walls and, until 150 years ago, made up the entire city of Barcelona. The area is a body of interconnecting narrow, cobble stoned streets where you can potter around for hours and explore the shops and restaurants.
The Manel apartment has been decorated to retain the original architectural details combining modern appliances with elegant antiques in a building that dates back many centuries. The original mouldings, exposed wooden beams, but especially the typical shuttered windows give guests the true Barcelona feeling. This first floor apartment is perfect for accommodating a family or group of friends, with two bedrooms and a pullout sofabed.
The Manel apartment is situated on the corner of the building and as such it is surrounded by large wooden shuttered windows. The living room and dining room is accommodated in one large room with a pullout sofabed. The master bedroom has a large double bed with plenty of closet space while the second bedroom houses bunk beds. The beautiful kitchen is fully equipped with cooker, oven, fridge, pots and pans, toaster and all the comforts of home. The spacious bathroom is clean and comfortable with shower, bath and a sink unit which have been newly installed. Please note that the actual toilet is separate to the bathroom. The whole apartment has been tastefully decorated with some rustic and antique furniture pieces.
You will not regret choosing this exceptional apartment to enjoy your stay in medieval Barcelona!

The El Born area of Barcelona is now considered of the most fashionable places in the city, maintaining the characteristic narrow streets and quaint cafe-covered squares of Barcelone but just being far enough removed from the beaten track to maintain a bit of calm, charm and dignity.
During the day the cafes are packed with tourists and locals alike whilst at night the younger of those move to Passeig de Born (known in Spanish as the Paseo del Born), once the site of medieval jousting competitions, to sample the many bars.
Nevertheless El Born isn’t just about the nightlife, and at one end of the Passeig Del Born looms El Born’s most famous building, the wonderful Santa Maria del Mar church, instantly recognisable by its large rose-shaped stained glass window and octagonal towers. Built between 1329 and 1383 at the height of Catalonia’s maritime and mercantile prominence. It is an outstanding example of Catalan Gothic architecture, with a purity and unity of style that is very unusual in large medieval buildings.
El Born is also home to the Museu Picasso (“Picasso Museum”), housed in five adjoining medieval palaces, and with 4.251 works by the painter it is one of the most extensive collections of artworks by the 20th-century Spanish artist.
Other than the joys of medieval architecture, and the aforementioned highlights, El Born is characterised by its hidden treasures. This fashionable district is the place where you will happen upon innovative boutique shops selling recycled bags, champagne bars serving up first class Cava (Spanish sparkling wine most of which is produced in Catalonia), or discover the joys of Lomo photography. Other treasures include the Chocolate Museum and the ever-popular Cal Pep restaurant.
Sandwiched between Via Laietana and Barceloneta El Born is served by the metro stops Barceloneta and Jaume 1 which are on the same line: L4, Yellow Line. Las Ramblas, Plaça Catalunya and the very heart of Barcelona are just a pleasant ten minute walk away.
