Family-focused and easy to live in, this quarter of Barcelona makes it perfect for newcomers to settle in.
A hidden allure
This area of Barcelona may not be the first one that comes up when looking for places to visit in the Mediterranean sun-and-sea city. It hasn’t got the historical attractions, small and quaint bars, crowded Ramblas and paella restaurants either, but that’s precisely what makes it perfect for renting a long-term flat in Barcelona; you can settle there without feeling you’re in the middle of a touristic madness. Living in Les Corts is comfortable, as it’s one of the less populated (and definitely higher class) neighbourhoods in the city, its connections with the centre of town are fantastic, and safety is ensured; it makes a great family and working life. There are supermarkets, well-suited shopping malls like L’Illa, gyms, excellent restaurants and superb bookstores like +Bernat, with a café and weekly literature events.
