Sants-Montjuïc

Barcelona’s nerve center.

Sants-Montjuïc, located on the southern end of the city, is Barcelona’s largest district, abutting the municipalities El Hospitalet de Llobregat and El Prat del Llobregat. It comprises various neighborhoods, each with its own character, like the formerly industrial areas of Sants, Hostafrancs, Poble-sec, and La Bordeta, as well as the port area and the Zona Franca Customs Authority. And it’s home to one of Barcelona’s most popular green spaces, the mountain of Montjuïc, crowned by a castle that defended the city’s coast in times past.
