Volta dels Tamborets
Where is it? If you walk up Passeig del Born toward the Santa Maria del Mar church, before you get to the Fossar de les Moreres, medieval arches open to the left, making little tunnels that give access to narrow streets, the most impressive of which is Volta dels Tamborets.
Why go? The plants in combination with the green ceramic on the balconies make this one of the most pleasant corners of the Born. The lovely craft shops connect with the neighbourhood's artisan history but with an updated design and feel, much like today's Born itself.
