Sadly its not a place that I would return to. Rather seedy and unpleasant at times, watch out for the dog mess, and unsavoury characters.

The last time I was in Barcelona we did not make it to El Raval, but this time I made a concerted effort to visit the Palau Guell, the antic Hospital Santa Crue, Sant Pau del Camp and others, including lunch at A Tu Bola,...More
While on vacation in Barcelona I walked by myself through throughout the Raval at all hours, including at 2 in the morning, and saw nothing but crowds of people having great fun. Never once did I feel unsafe, threatened, or intimidated. The Raval is a...More

Stayed somewhere here which I won't name as it was so noisy at night. The thing is the area is full of wonderful people doing stuff night and day just living their lives. Where the area meets 5 roads is where I stayed. So close...More
A heterogeneous neighborhood.You can encounter here a lot of emigrants,some of them wearing arab traditional cloths.The central area,around Raval street is nice,picturesque.There are many adjacent narrow cobbled streets,little restaurants and pubs.After the sunset on some of this streets appear prostitutes and queer people.
A nice place for a walk around the town,full of local people,small shops,few small restaurants.The giant cat was a nice suprise just out of nowhere.Worth seeing for sure and a change to more local culture.
