El Raval

West of La Rambla, El Raval is a bustling neighborhood with a pleasing mix of old restaurants and modern cafes. Previously home to the city's poorest, El Raval is a neighborhood in flux, and its seedy side is still apparent, especially after dark. Nevertheless, the hood is a hotspot worth visiting.
