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.

Weather in El Raval

If you plan to arrive at a holiday home in El Raval in summer then chances are you’ll get lots of warm, sunny weather, with temperatures that get close to 30 degrees most days. Evenings tend to be quite close at this time of year, with temperatures never slipping far below 20 degrees. Rainfall becomes more frequent later in the season, with September and October two of the wettest months of the year. Winters are normally mild, with sub-zero temperatures very uncommon, while the fringe months of April and November are usually pleasant.

Travel to El Raval

El Raval holiday accommodation has great transport links, especially if you’re using Barcelona-El Prat Airport (BCN) to get there from Britain. There are lots of low-cost routes from the UK to this destination, particularly during the summer. Once you arrive you could catch a taxi, or the Aerobus, which stops in nearby Plaça Catalunya. You can also take a Rodalies train, on the R2 line, and then take the Metro to any of the Sant Antoni, Paral-lel or Universitat stations on the L2 line.

Great position to explore city & beyond

5 of 5
This is great holiday home for 2/3 people. Everything you need provided & Anne Marie the owner is delightful, also the run through she gave on arrival proved very useful during our visit.We took our well travelled Roku stick (£40) for tv to access Netflix & NowTv (both by subscription). Short walks to sea,Ramblas & gothic area. Bus stops at bottom of road. There's so much to see & do to suit all ages and abilities. Carrer de Blai for amazing food & bars with great atmosphere only 5 mins away (Punjabi Bar veg paella & falafel dish were very tasty) We twice bought our veggie dinner from the famous Boqueria market on the Rambla (veggie pie x 2 & a great pre-prepared salad for €6). Lidl in the next street is so handy for essentials like bottled water. City bus tour-East €30 each, was a big disappointment so try other companies.On the plus side, the Casa Battlo tour which included smartphone type gadget, was a delight, be sure to move the screen up & down the rooms to see virtual reality bring the room to life. I'm a female in my 50's & not very athletic but I walked miles in the 2 weeks we stayed. There's so much to see it's a shame to be stuck on a bus. Best view was from the Miramar Terrace Restaurant on Montjuic, 30 mins steep walk from apartment but worth it. Went for just coffee day & night time & it's wonderful. The cable car station is next to it if you're brave enough. We stayed beginning of June which was ideal, I imagine July & August would get very busy, thats what makes the apartment ideally situated, it's near but not in the middle of the mayhem.

The apartment’s best feature is its location, within easy walking distance to Las Ramblas, Poble

4 of 5
The apartment’s best feature is its location, within easy walking distance to Las Ramblas, Poble Sec, the Mont Juic funicular, etc., and about 2 blocks from Mercat de St. Antoni and the Metro stop there. It is a fairly simple apartment—no amenities or luxuries—so don’t go with those expectations. The bathroom is a little cramped and the shower head had to be held by hand, since its attachment to the wall was broken. Over all, reasonable for the pice, given the fact that Barcelona is expensive.
