Barcelona as we mentioned before is a very colorful city. This is also valid for its neighborhoods. It has so much diversity in the areas: the vibe that you get when you walk around a certain “barrio”, the architecture of the building and even the people living there.
Since many of the people who move to Barcelona don´t have the time to walk around and choose the best area for their lifestyle and personality, we decided to offer you a Barcelona neighborhoods guide.
We will try to give you some idea of all the neighborhoods: what is life like there, how is the property rental market so you can make a better decision.
We have Ciutat Vella with the amazing Gothic architecture and the countless bars. The famous La Rambla, which is within walking distance from the sea. If you love the sea, but still want to be a little bit away from the noisy party people and the tourists, maybe you will prefer Sant Marti. It is situated on the right side of Parc Ciutadella and the area there is much more residential.
Or maybe you want to be in the center of the city where you have everything within walking distance. Then your choice should be L´Eixample. It is the biggest and one of the most beautiful neighborhoods in Barcelona, full of fancy stores, amazing restaurants and many on the famous Gaudi masterpieces.
If you feel like living in Barcelona, but prefer to be a little isolated from the whole rush and noise of the city, Sarria-Sant Gervasi could be a very good choice. Situated in the upper part of Barcelona, it is one of the most posh neighborhoods in Barcelona, with private schools and many universities. If you are lucky you can get a flat with a very nice view up there, giving you breathtaking views of the city.
Are you already confused? Because these are only some of the options you have when you move to Barcelona.
