It certainly is a hallucinating adventure to stay in one of the narrow medieval streets of the Borne district. Part of an intricate maze of small alleyways which has barely changed over the centuries, the Paseo del Borne Lofts' extraordinary location grants the captivating allure of the city.
The historic Borne has been revamped in recent years to become the trendiest district of Barcelona: chic fashion boutiques, art galleries, cool cocktail lounges, tapas' bars, café terraces, candlelit restaurants... Yet, the ancient walls can't stop telling stories of a far away past.
Its streets were named by the guilds which found them in the Middle Ages: the Mirallers street, those who worked glass; the Espartería street, those who made baskets; the Sombrerers Street of the hat makers; Pescatería where fish was sold. Calders, where the apartments are located, used to be the street of the boilers; conveniently close to the Plaça d'Olles (Pots Square) where you can eat one of the best tortillas in town.
The imposing Basílica de Santa María del Mar, also known as the Cathedral of the Sea, is the jewel of the area. A few steps away in a magnificent late Gothic palace is the Picasso Museum, which houses the painter's earliest work. And, if for whatever reason you might want to wander away from this fascinating area, there is a metro station 300 metres away: Sant Jaume (Line 4).
