#3. CENTRO CULTURAL DEL BORN
A historical center that is now one of the most relevant Markets in Barcelona. Started as the market of La Ribera, later in 1921, it became the Central Market for Fruits & Vegetables. There was even a period when it was closed, and many citizens though to demolish it. When doing its demolition, archaeological sites of its medieval past were found. That’s why today is recognized as an important cultural center.
