If there's one neighborhood that's done a 180 degree turn over the past few years, it's the Raval. What was used to be known as Barcelona's seediest area is now one of the trendiest and coolest places to frequent. Delicious restaurants line the central walkway, Rambla de Raval with chic new hotels, classy bars and late night clubs springing up on every corner. If you're looking for a taste of the 'real' Barcelona, then the Raval is definitely worth a visit.
