Districts of Barcelona
Travelers will be able to see the districts of Barcelona when familiarizing with the city map - they all have interesting places to visit. Barcelona is divided into 10 major districts, including - Gracia, Old Town, Saint-Montjuic, Eixample, Sant Martí, Courts, Sarrià-Sant Gervasi, Sant Andre, etc..
Description and attractions of the main areas
- Old Town: the best place for walking is the Gothic Quarter - here you can see the Cathedral, old streets and grocery shopping in the shops and boutiques located here. If there is a desire to visit art studios and galleries, it makes sense to move to the Raval quarter, and tourists will be able to walk through boutiques and visit the Picasso Museum when moving to the Born quarter. In the Old Town area, the Barceloneta quarter is located - in addition to the sandy beach and all kinds of entertainment (you can spend time on the mini-football and volleyball courts, go water skiing, as well as roller-skating, skateboarding or cycling along the promenade), guests will find the Barcelona aquarium and restaurants where they will be offered to taste fish and seafood dishes.
- Saint-Montjuic: consists of several quarters - Montjuic (it is worth visiting a museum in a medieval fortress; get acquainted with the architectural traditions of the Iberian Peninsula in Poble Espanyol; admire the light and musical fountains), Poble-Sec (this quarter has a peaceful rest - this is due to the cafes and squares), Sants (appreciated by lovers of bars and nightclubs) and others.
- Gracia: This area is most visited in August, when there is a 5-day festival, accompanied by bright colors (residents compete in bright and original street decoration) and fun with live music. A shopping tour of boutiques and Catalan shops can be an equally interesting pastime for travelers. If we talk about the main attraction of the Gracia district, then it is Park Guell..
- Sant Martí: consists of the Olympic Complex (there will not be boredom thanks to the open shops, casinos, restaurants and cinemas), Publin (a center for contemporary art with galleries and exhibition centers), Diagonal (ideal for family holidays; in May you can attend a musical festival Primavera Sound Festival).
Where to stay for tourists?
Excellent hotels can be found near La Rambla (not all of them are designed for the wealthy public) and in the Plaza Catalunya area. In the center of Barcelona, you can stay in boutique hotels with original design and furnishings on a budget. If your goal is to save on accommodation, you should look for a suitable hotel in the districts of Corts and Gracia - the city center is easily accessible by bus or metro..
