Ciutat Vella is the oldest district of Barcelona, as its name, old city, already indicates. It is a neighbourhood full of history, with relics and monuments at every corner. It is the epicenter of the Ciudad Condal, the ideal place to get lost in its meandering, narrow and somewhat dark streets, but it is full of medieval charm that reveals its history. Walking around this district, you will find many bars, restaurants, bakeries, coffee shops, food markets, designer shops, fashion stores, perfumeries and all kinds of shops with quality products. If you want to move through the city, you will find an excellent public transport network near your doorstep. In short, Ciutat Vella is a beautiful, historical district, full of surprises, and an ideal district to rent a flat in Barcelona.
The district of Ciutat Vella consists of several neighbourhoods with many interests and qualities. If you wish to rent a flat in the neighbourhood of Born, Sant Pere i Santa Caterina, you will discover a modern, bohemian area full of services, with beautifully renovated apartments and excellent design features.
