How can you arrive to the Petra Restaurant in the Born?
The aim of this section is to explain you how to arrive to Petra Restaurant not only by car or public transport but also by other means. Apart from giving you some basic indications, we will show you on a google map where we are, for you to simply decide your best route and come as you prefer. Above all take note of our address and remind our opening hours:
Monday to Thursday: from 13.15 pm to 16.00 pm and 20:30 pm to 23:00 pm
Friday and Saturday: from 13.15 pm to 16.00 pm and 20:30 pm to 24:00 pm
In Winter season Petra will be opened on Sunday at lunchtime. In summer, Petra will be closed on Sundays.
If you know El Born a bit, it’s going to be very easy for you to find us: from the Passeig del Born you can go until the main façade of Santa Maria del Mar. Our street, if the façade is in front of you, is the first one on the left.
If you come from the city centre, whether the Cathedral, Plaza Catalunya or Plaza Sant Jaume, the best is to reach Via Laietana and then go down until Argenteria Street, as this street is going to bring you straight on to the very same façade of Santa Maria del Mar.
If you prefer the public transport, you will find below the most appropriate ones. Ah! Don’t forget to make your reservation!

Take note if…
You take the car
Our street, as many others in the Born, is no entry for cars, so if you don’t come by means of any public transport, you will need to park in a car park on Comerç Street or even in Via Laietana. You have different car parks:
- Estació de França (França train station)
- Passeig del Born
- Via Laietana
For those of you who come by motorcycle or scooter, yes, it’s going to be a bit easier, but no big whoop… The closest places to leave them in Passeig del Born are usually full to the brim.
You come by train
Very easy: by walking, we are only 5 minutes far from Estació de França. You go out, carefully cross the street, take Comerç Street until Passeig del Born, and then keep on walking towards the Church. Watch out: when you reach the back side of it, you have to turn to right to the Montcada little square and, after 5 metres or less, you take the first street on your left. That’s it, you are on Sombrerers, our street. We are only a little further. Can you hear the bells ringing? We are just beneath them.
You take the bike
For you, bike riders, it is really easy: if you take Barcelona Bicing, the closest stop is on Princesa Street; if it is your own bike, you can always lock it in the different bike parking areas in Passeig del Born, less that two minutes far from our restaurant.
You take the subway
It’s a fact, if you live in Barcelona, the subway is the fastest and maybe the most practical option. The line is:
You can get off at Jaume I stop, take Via Laietana exit and, in Via Laietana walk 5 minutes down this street. You will be in Santa Maria del Mar very soon. We are on the first alley on the left, the one protected by the impressive stone of the temple at your right.
It is not hare-brained to get off at Liceo stop (green line), just in the middle of Las Ramblas, and have a nice walk across the Gothic to reach Santa Maria in about 10 minutes.
You have many connections and options to arrive to the Born, maybe the closest stops are:

14, 51 Passeig Picasso
