  • the building design and exterior decoration is rare to other cities. great area to explore one dwelling is more unique than the next  more »
  • Nice neighborhood with Grand boulevards, beautiful buildings, trendy shops and restaurants. Very well served by metro and Catalan railways is ideal for a stay in Barcelona. Very close to several important monuments that you can reach on foot by pleasant strolls in the avenues. If you stay in the apartment there are several small supermarkets, even organic. Recommended!

  • Stately, comfortable area for the ride, with admirable squares at the confluence of the different streets that comprise it, and endowed with the most distinguished shops and restaurants. I advise to observe during the tour, the different facades of the buildings, looking always to the top, since this area contains many buildings of real artistic value, apart from the popularly known.
