LOCATION 5 | A Culinary Tour of El Born
Left onto Passeig del Born
Turn left here onto Passeig del Born and keep going.
This pretty avenue dates back to medieval times when it was used for hosting tournaments and jousting matches. Born is the Catalan word for jousting fields. Later on, it became famous for a more sinister reason when victims of the inquisition were executed here. It's hard to imagine that now amongst all the outdoor cafe seating and pretty shops.
Continue walking, staying to the right-hand side of the street.
