Areas of Barcelona
Which neighborhood should I stay? What is the center of the city?
When it comes to traveling to a city, the first question we ask ourselves is in which area to look for a hotel. Discover the most representative neighborhoods of Barcelon:
EixampleThe modernist splendor
The Eixample of Barcelona, an extension of the city designed by the engineer Ildefons Cerdà and started in 1860, is, without doubt, one of the most unique urban spaces within the European and world context.
Sant Antoni and Poble-secDistrict of Sants-Montjuïc
The neighborhood of Sant Antoni owes its name to an old gateway to the walled city, known as the Sant Antoni gateway, which was the main entrance route to Barcelona since the Middle Ages. The neighborhood began to be urbanized during the second half of the 19th century, when the wall was demolished, and especially after the construction of the iron market, in 1882. This caused that, urbanistically, it was integrated into the Cerdà Plan, that is part of the Eixample district.
Ciutat VellaThe heart of Barcelona
To know Ciutat Vella is to know the origins of Barcelona: the old Barcino. The essence of what we know today as the historical nucleus of the city arose from the walled enclosure that surrounded it, where the Roman ruins coexist with medieval Gothic.
Frente MarítimoBarcelona looks at the sea
The space that goes from the foot of Montjuïc to the popular Barceloneta and continues along the beaches of Poble Nou, demonstrates the Mediterranean character of the city and its vocation as a maritime capital.
GràciaCorners of Gràcia
Until the end of the 19th century, the Gràcia district was an independent town of Barcelona, but it ended up being integrated; although it still conserves its low houses and its rich cultural and artistic life.
