We are located in on of the oldest neighbourhoods of the city wich still keeps many secrets form the Old City. We live in a strategic point of the city where we have everything we need nearby. We walk everywhere, and if we need, we have metro, train and busses just next to the corner.
I love the atmosphere in my neighbourhood, local and speciality stores (organic food, vintage clothes, vinyl records, wineries, vintage decoration), the mix of cultures, the architectural style of the old city, good restaurants, terraces in summer, the cultural centres. We also have one of the buildings considered artistic heritage: the Palau de la Música, just 5 minutes walk.
Also, another highlight of the city is the Arc de Trionf. Reference point to get home.
Or the Parc de la Ciutadella, a beautiful park IXX century, great place to go for a walk, jogging, yoga, dance or swing tip-tap on the center stand or just breathe fresh air.
How to arrive:
To arrive home from Airport El Prat, the best option is taking the Aerobus to Plaça Catalunya (last stop). Once you get off the bus go on your right and take Fontanella (is the first on the left corner with comercial centre. You will cross Plaça Urquinaona, and from there take Carrer Trafalgar (is quite long and with a curve) you keep on Trafalgar till my street Carrer LLuis el Piadós (right side)
From Girona Airport you just can take a Bus to Barcelona that sops in Estació del Nord, very close from home. You need to walk to Arc de Trionf, once you are in front of the arc, turn right and take Carrer Trafalgar (towards cars directions) till my street Carrer LLuis el Piados (second on your left side).
If you are arriving by train, for example to Sants Estació, you have to change platform to number 8 and take any train and stop in Arc de Trionf. Get off the platform through exit Av.Vilanova. You have to see the Arch in front of you when you leave out the station. Cross the square towards the Arch and take Carrer Trafalgar on your right side. Keep walking Carrer Trafalgar till my street Carrer Lluis el Piados
