Welcome to a fascinating journey through the stories and most charming corners of El Born!


We will meet promptly next to the majestic Arc de Triomphe in Barcelona to embark on an exciting tour of El Born, a neighborhood brimming with history and charm.

In front of this imposing monument, we will explore its roots and discover its fundamental role as the main entrance to the Universal Exhibition of 1888. Before entering the streets of El Born, we will immerse ourselves in a brief introduction about the fascinating journey that awaits us.

We will cross the picturesque square of Sant Pere de les Puelles and marvel at the Palau de la Música Catalana, an architectural jewel designed by the renowned Lluís Domènech i Montaner, an undisputed symbol of Catalan modernism.

Continuing our path, we will find the old convent of Sant Agustí Vell and we will unravel its intriguing link with the War of the Spanish Succession of the 18th century. Walking through the narrow streets of the neighborhood, we will immerse ourselves in the history of the famous Carassas, a symbol of the brothels of the time.

We cannot conclude our tour without visiting the emblematic El Born Market, witness to the architectural transformation of Barcelona. Did you know that he was a pioneer in iron architecture in the city? After two hours full of discoveries, we will say goodbye to our tour in front of the market, eager to share new adventures in the future. See you soon!
