My name is Carola. I will be happy to tell you about our neighbourhood and other areas of Barcelona, Sitges, Catalonia
Why Maria chose La Ribera El Borne
It is a colourful district, so easy to walk to museums (Picasso Museum), theaters (Liceo Theater), modernist building (Palace of Music), Gothic Quarter (Cathedral) shops I(Portal del Angel), markets (Santa Catherina Market), restaurants (4 Gats) and bars. The Ciutadella park is almost across the street and just behind is the beach (Barceloneta).
It is 5 min. to metro line and railway 'Arco de triunfo', 5 min. to bus Station del Norte ( to go to Girona, Figueras), 10 min. to main railway station de Francia. It is really the best location from where to discover Catalonia and the local lively neighborhood.
What makes this apartment unique
The unique feature of this apartment (compared to similar apartments in this area) is its amazing open views overlooking trees (with parrots) from all main rooms, which give you a lot of light, sunshine, and privacy even though you are in the very heart of Old Town.

Titre: Bel appartement très bien situé
Nous avons beaucoup apprécié notre séjour à Barcelone. Cet appartement est situé dans un très beau secteur tranquille près de l'animation de Barcelone. Nous avons pleinement profité des quartiers Gothic, Ramblas & Ribera, où règne l'animation toute la journée jusqu'au coucher. Il y a un charmant restaurant avec terrasse à l'entrée de l'immeuble. Je vous recommande cette location.
