Raval District

The Raval district is the most western part of the Barcelona Old Town, located between the busy Rambla and the recently restored Mercat de Sant Antoni. It is however a neighborhood that gives me mixed feelings: while some areas are the kind of off the beaten path alleys you’ll love to explore, other backstreets aren’t too recommendable nor safe… But if you are an intrepid traveler that are willing to see the (just a bit) darker side of Barcelona and love to see where cultures mix and where immigrants live, in this tag you’ll find our best recommendations to help your explorations.
