obresIt’s an exciting time for the Mercat del Born neighborhood. Focused on the new Mercat del Born Cultural Center, this neighborhood is bounded by Passeig de Picasso, Carrer Princesa, Carrer Rec, and Estaciò de França. While vibrant, alive and full of long time residents, it had been a forgotten corner of the center of Barcelona for many years as the market which is at its core lay closed and abandoned.

With renovations to the market completed in 2013 and a rebuilding of the streets around it to form tight integration with the El Born neighborhood that borders it, this little, old corner of Barcelona has been brought back to life.
