El Raval is the "barri" beyond the Rambla towards Montjuic hill. In that area in medieval times there were fields and some religious foundations such as Sant Pau del Camp and the complex of Hospital de Santa Creu ( both of which can still be visited). However gradually housing was built too and a second wall was added (the line of Ronda Sant Antoni, Ronda Sant Pau and Parallel). El Raval is sometimes referred to as the "barri xino" (Chinatown, even it has nothing to do with China, it's slang for red-light district). It used to be Barcelona’s traditional red-light district, and still it is in parts, especially at the lower end near the port. The upper part around MACBA was gentrified in recent years, with some urban interventions as the new Rambla del Raval. The upper part of Raval is now a lively, colorful and trendy area, partly as a result of the presence of the MACBA museum and Centre of Contemporary Culture (CCCB) there and also the location of some university faculties in the area. Some smart new hotels have also recently opened. Many tourist apartments are located in the Raval and this can lead to conflicts with the permanent residents. However, still many of the side-streets are unappealing and can be (relatively) dangerous at night and there is also, as elsewhere in Barcelona, a problem with graffiti and litter.
