Streets, squares & neighbourhoods

La Rambla

La Rambla

Gradually, leisure and cultural attractions found the perfect location on La Rambla. The convents disappeared and florists and newsstands set up there premises here. As you walk along, you"ll see landmark buildings, such as the greatest theatre of Barcelona"s opera, the Gran Teatre del Liceu, the Palau de la Virreina and the spectacular Boqueria Market. This human river, with its street artists, tourists and locals, who still come here for a stroll, take us on a journey through this microcosm of contemporary Barcelona.

Nou Barris

Now they are proud to show visitors their shopping streets and attractive and innovative green spaces. Maybe the clearest proof of this are the many green areas in the district, such as the Parc de la Guineueta, the Parc del Turó de la Peira and the modern Parc Central de Nou Barris which covers a surface area of 17 hectares and is the city"s second biggest park. It opened in 1999 and was extended in 2003, and uses the greenery in its different spaces to integrate the district"s unique and historic buildings, such as the former Santa Creu Mental Hospital, the current home of the district council; Can Carreras, an old farmhouse; and the business innovation centre, the Forum Nord.
Old Barceloneta

Old Barceloneta

As you explore the narrow streets of the old Barceloneta neighbourhood in Ciutat Vella, you"ll discover the charm and atmosphere of a working-class district, which attracts many tourists to its beaches, fine restaurants and bars.

Old part of the neighbourhood Sarrià

The old part of Sarrià, with its small squares and main street, the Carrer Major, perfectly mirrors the history of the neighbourhood, where nearly every house and building reveals the origins of what was once one of the most prosperous villages on the Barcelona plain.
Parc del Fòrum

Parc del Fòrum

The Parc del Fòrum is located on the waterfront at the northernmost end of the city. The park was built for the 2004 Universal Forum of Cultures. It isn"t a park or green space in the strictest sense of the word, but a large area which brings together a series of spaces and amenities which host a wide range of events.
