Experiencing the Born District


This multi-media fashion map from the New York Times–called “The Born Supremacy“–is a handy little feature on Barcelona’s booming Born District that’s worth taking a look at before visiting.

While discovering innovative designers of some of the most beautiful clothes, china, furniture and food in Spain today here, you can also enjoy the history of innovation here from people like Pablo Picasso. Many works of Picasso, who lived in this district while frequenting a diner called “4 Gats,” are housed here in the Museu Picasso. And until August 28 (hurry!), the museum is housing an impressive exhibit called “Las Meninas,” which investigates the influences of Velasquez on several artists like Picasso.

We’re especially proud of the recommendations in the map, as they include many of the outstanding spots that we visit on our Barcelona Gourmet Tours through this section of town.
