Born Romantic Center Apartment near the beach
Barcelona, Catalonia, Spain

Additional Location Information
GOING OUT: HISTORY, CUISINE, ART, BEACH, NIGHTLIFE
The apartment is in the center of Barcelona. From the balcony you can see less than 20 meters away the main facade of the cathedral of Santa Maria del Mar, the protagonist of the bestseller THE CATHEDRAL OF THE SEA. Of course, if you like history and medieval period, this is your place.
Located in the Gothic Quarter, in the Born area where today are positioned workshops and art galleries, local fashion designers, great terraces and restaurants offering many dining options.
There are also streets around the apartment now iconic like the one where the movie "Perfume" based on the book by Patrick Suskind was filmed. From the apartment you can go walking to the beach of Barceloneta in less than ten minutes. Fifteen minutes you can also find the famous Plaza Real, in which Woody Allen filmed Vicky, Cristina, Barcelona.
And if you don't feel like walking, don't worry, the subway is right next door and there are also several bus lines that take you to any part of the city.
Also very close is the shopping street Portal del Angel. Where you can find anything you need: boutiques, bookstores, etc! Not only the most popular stores, also original products from small shops, decorating shops, crafts, or whatever you can not find anywhere else.
And the best is to wander through the streets and end up at the Church of Pi, a jewel of Romanesque art, or the Church of San Felipe Neri. Or, if you prefer to walk with the family on the Ramblas surrounded by flowers up to the fantastic Boqueria market and then down to walk past the restored building of the Liceu, the port and reach the promenade.
If you like music and architecture you can find also next to the apartment the Palau de la Música, a jewel of Catalan modernist architect Domenech i Muntaner, a disciple of Gaudí, the architect of the Sagrada Familia.
And if you walk up all Via laietana you would see also part of the Roman walls. So, you have the whole history of the city within walking distance.
Although the best is the apartment itself. As it is in the Gothic and old fishing district, the architect took the original structure and reconverted into a dream. Looks like you're in another era, but with the comforts of XXI century. A loft design but with the air of an old fisherman's house. Sometimes it feels like being on a boat. You have two balconies overlooking medieval, many light, and much comfort. It is ideal for families with children, romantic couples or groups of friends who want to have fun.
Also, if you like football and want to see FC Barcelona in their natural habitat, the Nou Camp, if you want to watch live the best players in the world, Messi, Piqué, Valdés, Xavi, Iniesta, Villa, Puyol and Fabregas , the legendary "dream team" that Pep Guardiola created you can access within minutes by subway from the apartment.
Of course, if you want to have fun and spend some romantic days surrounded by history and glamor, this is your place.
Barcelona, capital of the Mediterranean, in the region of Catalonia, northeast of Spain. Its lifestyle, architecture, its people, its own language, cuisine, and the style of the locals, make of the city its own unique identity. Barcelona has it all, this is the best definition of the city of Barcelona. It is also a good base to go to the Balearic Islands Mallorca, Menorca or Ibiza, the Costa Brava or the Costa del Levante. You can also visit a few hours by boat the Italian island of Sardinia.
