La Rambla and el Raval
La Rambla runs between the Plaza de Catalunya and the port. It is a unique promenade, lively and colourful, full of newspaper stands, craft products and flower stalls. More than 1,200 metres of thoroughfare which anyone who visits Barcelona simply must visit.
Four of our hotels in Barcelona are located near La Rambla: H10 Casanova, H10 Universitat, H10 Urquinaona Plaza, H10 Metropolitan, H10 Racó del Pi and H10 Catalunya Plaza. And the Raval, the city's multicultural neighbourhood par excellence, begins on the other side of the Rambla. If you come to stay at one of these hotels in the centre of Barcelona you can stroll leisurely through La Boqueria market, Plaza Real, el Palau de la Virreina or visit el Grand Theatre of the Liceu.
Gothic neighbourhood and the Born
During your stay in the H10 Montcada, H10 Cubik or the H10 Racó del Pi, you can go for a stroll through the Gothic neighbourhood, delighting in the remains of the old Roman city, the medieval buildings, the Museum of History or the Cathedral. The Gothic neighbourhood houses the palaces of the City Hall and the Government of Catalonia, the Cathedral of Barcelona and other gothic churches, such as Sant Just, Santa Maria del Pi or Pastor. Very nearby is the Born, a neighbourhood where the city's most modern shops are located.
La Ribera is the neighbourhood of the Church of Santa María del Mar, one of the city's best-known. Its streets combine the gothic and neoclassic styles of the buildings of Via Laietana, typical of the architecture of one of our hotels in Barcelona: the H10 Montcada. Many artists have set up their workshops in La Ribera, following the tradition of the area where the city's craftsmen used to live.
