POBLE SEC: THE NEW TRENDY CENTRE OF BARCELONA.
Poble Sec stretches between the Avenida Paralelo (that separates Poble Sec from the Raval) and the Montjuic hill, and it borders with Plaza de Espanya on one side, and the sea on the other.
The development of Poble Sec started in the XIX Century when people who could not afford living within the walled city started to settle in this area.
Later, Poble Sec became known for the theatres and clubs along the Avenida Paralelo, which was at some point one of the most important and lively streets of Barcelona. The avenue is today regaining this reputation thanks to the opening of some famous restaurants and the refurbishment of some of the most famous venues, such as the “El Molino” theatre.
The change in the area of Poble Sec is very recent. Up to only four or five years ago, Poble Sec was still a relatively quiet corner of Barcelona, populated by a mixed of local residents and immigrants mainly from South America. Property prices were quite low, and the area offered a less crowded alternative to the touristy neighbouring areas of the Raval and the Eixample.
Today, Poble Sec is one of trendiest, liveliest and property-wise most interesting areas of Barcelona.
The low property prices and the enviable location have attracted many foreigners, including young professionals such as architects, designers, and artists who have opened studios in the streets of Poble Sec.
Calle Blai and Plaza del Sortidor have become two of the most famous destinations of the Barcelona nightlife thanks to countless bars, restaurants, cafes, and tapas places with outdoor terraces.
The absence of landmarks preserve the area of Poble Sec from being floated by tourists, which leaves the area quiet.
The proximity to the Montjuic hill offers wide green spaceseasily accessible for a walk, jogging, relaxing, or refreshing during the hot Summer days.
The sea is reachable in around 15 minute walk and so are the Ramblas.
Transport links in Poble Sec are very good, with two of the main underground lines stopping along the Avenida Paralelo (L2 and L3, Parallel and Poble Sec stations), and many buses.
The shuttle bus to/from the international airport stops at Plaza de Espanya and reaches the airport in less than 20 minutes without any further stop.
