Do you have a question about this home or the local area?

Functional but with plenty of charm too, this home in Barcelona first caught our eye with its exposed brick and Catalan vaulted ceilings – all while adding in plenty of modern amenities. We also love that there is a little balcony here, handy for catching a glimpse of the city before you head out to explore. Nearby you'll find the Old Town, Barcelona's port, and the Las Arenas shopping centre, meaning you'll be swamped with choices for ways to spend your day.

About El Poble-Sec

El Poble-Sec is often dubbed the liveliest area in Barcelona, and rightfully so. Although it is still a bit rough around the edges, it has a booming theatre scene and an abundance of tapas restaurants and drinking dens, making a casual stroll through the area a true experience for all the senses. The vibrancy of El Poble-Sec has attracted a number of artists, creative professionals, and foodies to move here, creating a village-like atmosphere of a multicultural community that feels unlike any other in the city.
