Once an industrial area, Poblenou has gone (and continues to go) through a transformation, bringing art and leisure into the neighbourhood. If you're here for the beach, then this home is close to perfect – Playa Bogatell is a ten-minute walk away. There are stairs in this home and no ramp, so it's not the best option for those with limited mobility or heavy luggage, but the layout of the home itself is handled extremely well. The upstairs even has a balcony overlooking the living room, which is one of the many cosy spots to enjoy a coffee and conversation.

Local guide


About El Poblenou

El Poblenou is on the rise. Nested between the beach and the old town, it’s a fusion of old and new architecture, quickly becoming the technological heart of Barcelona. It’s a lot more tranquil than most parts of the city, but its list of attractions is growing fast. Scattered between buzzing shops that embrace its rough-luxe feel are some of the most loved and recommended eateries in the whole city. The closer you get to the beach, the more they turn into more traditional tapas restaurants and bars that let you mingle with the locals and travellers alike.
