Long before the famous expansion of Ildefons Cerdà, which became what we now know as the Eixample, a part of the population of Barcelona -due to its low purchasing power- had already begun to look for new areas to settle beyond the walls that limited the city, resulting in what could be considered one of the first expansions of Barcelona: the neighborhood of Poble Sec.
At the foot of the Montjuïc mountain, Poble Sec offers Barcelona lovers an ideal selection of the best of the city, with a perfect blend of mountain and sea, thanks to its privileged location just 15 minutes walk from Las Ramblas -where the bustle and shopping are protagonists on a daily basis- and simultaneously only a few minutes from the promenade and Montjuïc mountain.
Despite its location so close to the center of the city, it is an area where you can breathe tranquility in comparison to other areas of Barcelona, because it is mostly a residential area with a true working spirit. In addition to easy access to entertainment venues such as the Raval, you can also enjoy a wide cultural offer, with theaters such as El Molino or Teatre Grec, where an annual festival of theater, dance and music is held under the same name.
Finally, thanks to its convenient connection with public transport to Montjuïc, from Poble Sec you can easily visit places of interest such as Montjuïc Park, the Magic Fountain or Poble Español.
