Ciutat Vella, Gótico, Born, Port Vell

At HJAPÓN; Barcelona’s leading real-estate agency, we manage the sale and rental of many exclusive apartments, luxury homes, and fantastic penthouses overlooking the seaside in three of the most famous neighbourhoods in Barcelona; Barceloneta, Gótico, and Born. Many of these properties are also brand-new, some of which are located in the district of Ciutat Vella.

From these three historic neighbourhoods in Barcelona;

We begin with the maritime neighbourhood of Barceloneta. Historically inhabited by the fishermen and workers in the harbour, now this gorgeous neighbourhood next to the seaside has become one of the most sought-after residential districts in the world.

Recently, it has gained a lot of fame and love from tourists thanks to its beach bars in San Sebastian, its location next to the seaside, and for its personality that combines perfectly the local charm and international, cosmopolitan atmosphere.

Following on from this, is the jewel of the Barcelona; the Gótico neighbourhood. Located in the old part of town, this area is home to the remains of the Medieval Roman quarter from 2000 years ago, creating an exciting juxtaposition of historical landmarks and modern buildings. The Gótico is a pleasant neighbourhood, where one can walk and look at the Cathedral, the Royal Palace, the Picasso Museum, the Palace of the Generalitat de Cataluña, and many more. It has also become a popular residential zone due to its peaceful nature, and its proximity to all manner of services such as restaurants, shops, cafes, public transport, and the beach.

El Born, historically inhabited by merchants, sailors and artisans, is now a multicultural, high-fashion neighbourhood. One can experience this mixture of the old with the new at the Born Market. Additionally there are many historical monuments in the area including the gothic basilica of Santa María del Mar, the gothic fish market, and the Parque de la Ciudadela. Similar to its neighbouring zones of Barceloneta and Gótico, Born is gaining popularity amongst the tourists and international citizens who want to buy or rent apartments, houses or penthouses.
