It is the oldest district, number 1, the embryo of the city, where all its history begins from the original Barcino, where Roman ruins and medieval Gothic coexist. This district is made up of four neighborhoods, the Gothic, Sant Pere, Santa Caterina, El Born and La Ribera, and Barceloneta, each one more interesting than the other for tourists, since it is the most touristic area of the city, as well as residents. Despite its name, it is one of the most dynamic areas, full of history, art and culture, diversity and very cosmopolitan.
Its two markets are especially interesting, La Boquería and Santa Caterina have everything you need from anywhere in the world.
The buildings are quite old and many are very well preserved. The floors are generally medium to small, and fantastic historical jewels can be found, such as floors with medieval or Roman walls.
So if you are a lover of the city’s millenary history, culture, heritage, the most varied gastronomy, the beach, and entertainment, and you want to make a good investment, in this district you can find your ideal neighborhood.
