The area is undergoing a huge urban regeneration project and a lot of money has been invested in revitilising this area into a more modern and safer neighbourhood.
The MACBA (museum of modern art) is located here and the surrounding plaza has become a favourite hangout for skaters. This image really embodies the Raval, these clean, cultural centres mixed in with the working class and punk fashion subculture. The nearest metro stops are on Las Ramblas, Barcelona’s most famous street and the food market La Boqueria where each morning you can find chefs from Barcelona´s best restaurants buying ingredients.
A lively, multi-cultural neighbourhood suited to people who come from all walks of life.
