El Born is part of the Ciutat Vella (old city) of Barcelona and sits within a larger district officially called Sant Pere, Santa Caterina i la Ribera.
Barcelona traces its origins over 2,000 years ago to the Roman colony called Barcino.
Many people have heard of Gaudí’s major works, such as the Sagrada Família and Casa Milà. Other equally interesting Gaudí’ architecture lies tucked away, sometimes in quiet residential neighborhoods.
This is a beautiful walk of about 6km within the city that takes about 2 hours, winding through the districts of Gràcia, Carmel and Horta-Guinardó. Along the way we pass three hills: Coll (249 meters), Carmel (267 meters) and Rovira (261 meters).
