Interaction with Guests

The neighbourhood has a local and touristy balanced combination. The vicinity to Sagrada Familia and Hospital Sant Pau makes the area a major attraction without the massive amount of tourists that you will get in other parts of Barcelona. There are many local stores with very nice cafés and terraces where you can enjoy and get a feel of Barcelona's Mediterranean lifestyle
Just two blocks from the apartment you have 2 metro stations: Hospital Sant Pau Station( Metro Blue Line) and Sagrada Familia Station (Blue and Purple line). By metro you are only 3 stops away from Ramblas and you can get there in 12-15 minutes. If you prefer to take the bus, then two blocks away you have several bus stops with lines 19, 45, 47 that will take to Plaza Cataluña, or line 92 that will take you to Glories Shopping Mall if you are in the mood for shopping.
