Location, location, location.
The apartment is 2 minutes walking from the city center, 12/15 min to the Ramblas (or 1 metro stop ).
Poble Sec is between Barcelona´s old town and "Montjuic", Barcelona`s green little mountain.
On one side we have El Raval, Gothic (ramblas, cathedral, etc) and El Born, and on the other side Montjuic, with it's amazing views, parks, museums (Joan Miro`s, Nation Art), olimpic village, theatres ( el grec, el molino rojo) and so on...
The place is the very escense of Barcelona.
Poble Sec itself is an amazing & lively neighborhood. We are 20 mts away from one of the priettiest streets of the city ( Carrer de Blai ) which is literally full of Tapas restuarants offering "pinchos" and beers for 1EUR each.
Close to Plaza Espanya, the way in and out from the city (Train station and way to the airport) and the magic Fountain.
And also, next to the sea.
