Now, Nou Barris' character is a diverse mix of communities and backgrounds.

A Growing Community In the City's Fringes
The district is so peaceful and nice, I feel so good here. There are so many great tapas bars and there's a beautiful food market...From here it's so easy and fast to get everywhere (city center, beach, etc.) by metro, bus, or night bus. I go everywhere by bicycle."
