The melting pot that is El Raval is different than any other part of Barcelona. Skaters will lead you to the MACBA Square, where you'll find the Museum of Contemporary Art. El Raval is also arguably the best spot in Barcelona for retro gear, as there are dozens of shops designated for vintage fashion. Sesamo is a vegetarian restaurant that uses organic produce, and absinthe is always on tap at Bar Marsella. It's not all sweet in El Raval though—there's definitely a dark side that you should be aware of, but it doesn't take away from the beauty of the neighborhood.
