Things to do

-Culture. El Raval has a reputation for literature and the arts - in this neighbourhood are the Museum of Contemporary Art and Centre for Contemporary Culture. You could continue your journey through Barcelona’s arts scene by visiting the nearby Parc de Joan Miró to see one of this artist’s most important sculptures, the 21 metre-high Woman and Bird. There’s also a fantastic museum in Sants-Montjuïc dedicated to his work.

-Architecture. Barcelona has a UNESCO World Heritage Site protecting its numerous works of Catalan Modernist architecture, an offshoot of art nouveau that straddled the late 19th and early 20th Centuries. The luminary was Antoni Gaudí, who designed La Pedrera and Casa Batlló in l’Eixample, as well as the sublime Sagrada Família church, an awe-inspiring landmark so elaborate that it won’t be completed until 2026, a century after it was started.

-Local sights. No visit to Barcelona would be complete with out a walk along Las Ramblas, which passes by El Raval. It’s a bustling, tree-lined walkway, home to flower-sellers, living statues and a famous mosaic by Joan Miró by day. On the way you could stop by at La Boqueria market or watch the world go by from a street-side cafe.

-Food and drink. El Raval is a young, stylish area, home to trendy cafes, bars and noodle houses. Tapas bars also abound, especially if you head up to Plaça Catalunya. On Passeig de Gràcia the scene is a bit more upscale, with lots of elegant cafes and eateries lining the street. There are a number of places to enjoy fresh seafood across Barcelona, but very close, in Poble-Sec is Rias de Galicia, serving fish in the Galician style.

-Shopping. El Raval is probably the best place to be if you’ve come to Barcelona to indulge in rental therapy. In the immediate vicinity are alternative boutiques and independent book-shops. Across La Rambla are a mixture of small, affordable fashion stores and all the international high-street brands. You could make for Passeig de Gràcia for luxury boutiques, or down to Barceloneta for Maremagnum, one of Barcelona’s best malls.

Called Zine who was meeting us at the apartment to say we had arrived and he said to come straight to the apartment although we were early, check in is 2pm. Cleaners were still in apartment on our arrival but that wasn't a problem, Zine explained everything to us. Air con in the large bedroom not working but this was rectified same day. Beautiful bright,spacious well equipped apartment, very comfortable beds and no noise as the apartment is at the back of the building. Have seen reviews about rubbish, rats, locals hanging about drinking etc but we can honestly say we saw no problems. Rubbish/recycling bins opposite apartment but if any rubbish was lying about it was quickly removed. Street sweepers are frequently seen around and even a machine washing the streets one day. There are of course locals of all types around but this is their home and this is city life, we loved it. Short stroll to La Rambla, the Port and a stones throw from several restaurants, bars and taxi rank. Metro is brilliant too, very cheap, used it a lot. Our only slight hiccup was on our leaving day when we had arranged for Zine to meet us at 8am at the apartment to check out. We waited till 8:30 before we called him and he was obviously still in bed so he told us just to leave the keys on the table. We weren't particularly happy to do this but we had to leave to get to the airport. However we would definitely return to this apartment, loved it.

Cosy, clean and well equipped apartment. Excellent communications with owner, very helpful and responsive. We are a family of 4 (2 adults & 2 teenagers) that stayed for 4 nights. Would definitely return to this apartment.

Nearby is a supermarket, bakery, pharmacy and restaurants do everything you need very close by.
