My name is Carlos and I was born in Barcelona city where I have lived most of my life. In 1994 moved into the Old Town and a year later bought what I call in this advert apartment #1 where I had been living until I started renting it out. I love Barcelona and I specially love this neighbourhood, definetely the most charming in the city.
Carlos purchased this apartment in 1995
Why Carlos chose La Ribera El Borne
It is ideally located in the center of the historic Old Town, in a street that exists since the 14th century and it is in walking distance to most sights in the city and the area is stepped in history.
What makes this apartment unique
Being in a stone's throw from most sights and various underground stops, plus stepping into history tracing back to the Middle Ages. Equally, the highest concentration in town of restaurants is at your doorstep, the Born, as well as the main commercial centers and independent shops. Finally, but not least, the beach is in 12 minutes walk from the apartment
