Les Corts

Les Corts means business, especially when it roots for its home team, FC Barcelona.

Power-brokers, power-lunchers, and a power house fútbol dynasty congregate in Les Corts. This once-independent village is now home to offices and the city's beloved soccer team, FC Barcelona. Dominated by sleek towers and shopping centers, Les Corts' core exhibits a uniformly commercial feel enveloped by understated neighborliness. Although business comes first in this straightforward neighborhood, old village lifestyles continue on just beyond its corporate meeting rooms and game day crowds.
