Everyone knows that Barcelona is a cosmopolitan city, but it is also a city that encompasses numerous neighbourhoods, each with its own particular idiosyncrasies and characteristics, which make for a unique atmosphere in every corner. From WeRelocateBCN we invite you to take a walk through the city and its most famous neighbourhoods.
❖ Gothic Quarter: this is one of the most typical quarters and the oldest in the city, where you can find the archaeological remains of the primitive Roman city and where you can get lost walking through its winding streets.
❖ Barrio de Gràcia: here tradition and the inhabitants’ personality meet, mostly elderly people whose families have lived here for generations, keeping their roots tied to the area.
❖ Barrio de Eixample (Detra e Esquerra): this is perhaps one of the best places to go shopping in the capital, thanks to its characteristic system of gridded streets, which, in addition to numerous bars and restaurants, offers wonderful Modernist architecture that can be seen in Casa Batllò, Casa Milà and, of course, Gaudí’s Sagrada Familia.
❖ Barceloneta neighbourhood: this is where the city’s urban beach is located, an ideal place both for walking and for doing sports activities by the sea.
❖ Les Corts neighbourhood: this part of the city is where the commercial and financial district of the capital is located. It doesn’t hold a great deal of appeal for tourists, but it does have many shops, hotels and restaurants.
❖ Montjüic neighbourhood: this area stands out for the fabulous views of the city, once you have climbed to the top of the mountain. Here you will find the Poble Espanyol, the Olympic Stadium of Barcelona F.C., the Magic Fountain of Montjüic and the MNCA Museum.
Whatever your age, tastes or hobbies, you will always be able to find a neighbourhood in Barcelona right for you.
