The 1992 Olympic Games injected new life into Poblenou, a neighborhood that had once resembled a scene from a sooty cyberpunk film. Barcelona's massive neighborhood investment manifested into dining, nightlife, and beachside attractions along Poblenou's picturesque coast. Since the games, the neighborhood's rise has remained steady and thrill-seekers from around the world continue to transform the area into a vibrant hub on the verge of ultimate esteem.See places to stay Save this neighborhood
A Coastal Neighborhood Made from Old Industrial Spaces
Poblenou used to be full of industrial factories and has slowly changed. Full of sought-after lofts, art galleries, studios for artists, graphic designers, publicity agencies... However, all of its character has remained due to its strong local community feel with its own Rambla de Poblenou where restaurants and shops are full of locals."
