Reviews about Barri de La Ribera

Eric Brink

4/5
Reviewed on 23 Nov 2011

La Ribera (or The Shore) is one of the many neighbourhoods that Gayle and I strolled through during our recent trip to Barcelona. Many of the buildings date from late Medieval times. It was a well-to-do quarter during 13th-15th centuries, when it really was by the sea shore. In fact, the area that today is named Barceloneta was still an island. La Ribera housed the wealthier shippers and merchants. Its streets were lined with their grand mansions, which like the nearly Church of Santa Maria del Mar, where built with their wealth. Besides the Basilica, notable places we saw included the Museu Picasso, the Palau de la Musica Catalana, the Museu de la Xocolata (and the cool Arxiu Fotographic upstairs), Fossar de les Moreres, and trendy Passeig del Born.
