El Raval is one of the most vigorous, peculiar and multi-cultural neighbourhoods in Barcelona. Its denomitation originates from the slums of the medieval walls of Barcelona. In the tortuous alleys of this bustling neighbourhood that extends between La Rambla, La Plaza Real and the beach, Barcelona’s counterculture is fused with its current cosmopolitanism.
At El Raval, Barcelona remains in its purest state. There you will find the best restaurants, the most up-to-date concert halls, the coolest nightclubs, and probably the most decadent and authentic cuchitril bars of Barcelona. By day and by night, El Raval emerges as a set of colourful contrasts in Barcelona’s medieval heart.
