The new center of El Born
42 years after its closing Mercat del Born, the market of El Born, is back under the name of EL Born CC for El Born Centre Cultural.
It is understood that El Born CC is not anymore a market but an Cultural Center which recalls a hard period of the history of Barcelona: TheWar of the Spanish Succession from 1701 to 1714. Period which marked forever the history of the Catalan Nation.
This building, today completely reinvented, offers under its splendid metal structure a sight on the archaeological vestiges of this time. One comes there to visit these vestiges, to see conferences or concerts, but also for its restaurant:"L'espai gastronòmic Moritz" and for its very interesting bookshop (llibreria-botiga).
Since its opening in 2013 the entire area has been transformed and you will appreciate to make a stop in the neighborhood before heading to the Picasso Museum or to the church Santa Maria del Mar, just around the corner.
