Located between the foothills of Montjuïc and the port, Poble Sec is one of the oldest neighborhoods in Barcelona. Official development of the area began in the 19th century and with every decade the neighbourhood has seen a variety of changes in its inhabitants, food offerings, entertainment outlets and culture, with the old and the new standing side-by-side on every corner.

Well connected to the rest of the city yet somehow not over run by the denser tourism of nearby Sant Antoni or El Raval , Poble Sec offers a quiter refuge from the bustle of Barcelona. Leafy tree lined streets and the typical Barcelona buildings provide shade from the sun and respite from the crowds. It seems incredible that in only a few short steps from the ultra busy Parallel we find ourselves in the quiet and calm of these streets.
Poble Sec has excellent transport links to the rest of the city and the world. A short walk to Plaza de España gives you the Aerobus with buses every 5 minutes to the airport.
