By  |  0 Comments
BARCELONA | September is one of the best months to visit Barcelona.  It’s generally sunny and even on soft rainy days one can enjoy pleasant walks across the city. But there is a particular area where these enjoyable walks are likely to make you feel a delightful experience. These are the beautiful alleys of the fashionable El Born district.  The  streets and charming squares of El Born hide tiny restaurants, cafès, boutiques, art  galleries, and the magnificent Church of Santa Maria del Mar (a refugee of calm). There is also the not-to-be-missed Picasso Museum and recently a new cultural spot has been added to the area: El Born Cultural Centre. The narrow Flassaders street has a very special microcosms and it captures the whole atmosphere of the district, far from  some of the noisy streets nearby.  As you walk you’d find a large number of such shops all of them catering very special items. This is a selection of the most significant ones but of course this lively street has several other shops that are worth visiting. el born shopping
