The 10 Barcelonas
Come to where history is lived
The old Bàrcino, the core of the city we know today, where Roman ruins rub shoulders with medieval Gothic, gave rise to the first district: Ciutat Vella. Its streets, alleyways and squares are an open book where you can read the history of Barcelona.
Feel how the city opens up to the world
The Eixample is the bourgeois, Modernista district par excellence It meant the opening up of Barcelona beyond its walls at the end of the 19th century, and its straight, broad, elegant streets show the city's urban movement.
Enjoy its shops and entertainment
Unpretentious and proud, the Sants-Montjuïc district descends from the mountain and spreads over the plain and to the sea, offering a journey through the history of a commercial and tireless Barcelona, where the fun in its neighbourhoods is just another tradition.
Wander around its parks and gardens
Between Avinguda Diagonal, packed with shops and commercial establishments, and the football crowds of the Camp Nou, the district of Les Corts unfolds like a landscaped Barcelona for you to wander round and discover, halfway between its rural past and the elegant residential neighbourhood.
Go up to where knowledge and recreation coincide
Barcelona's most residential district, old Sarrià-Sant Gervasi, retains a small-town feel that makes it a peaceful and delightful residential area. Surrounded by green spaces, it climbs up a Tibidabo covered with buildings and places devoted to science and recreation.
Discover culture and creativity everywhere
The Gràcia district opens up its streets and squares to multiculturalism and the most cosmopolitan artists, to music, the theatre and the cinema, but without losing its essence as a proud village that is different and reasserts its past. A Gràcia with grace.
Enjoy the legacy of water
At the foot of the Collserola range, the Horta-Guinardo district is a fantastic viewpoint overlooking the city. It has always been fertile and enjoyed an abundance of water; the old "masies", or farmhouses, and its green spaces are a precious, living reflection of this wealth.
Be surprised by its spaces
The large and varied Nou Barris district, the unexplored Barcelona at the foot of Collserola, includes numerous green spaces to enjoy and an active community and cultural life that moves at a different pace to the rest of the city.
Let yourself get carried away by tradition
The Sant Andreu district is like its residents, with its temperament, fighting spirit and a profound sense of respect for tradition. From els Tres Tombs a to the Esclat and so many other festivals, tradition marks the course this former village which, now annexed to Barcelona, still maintains its spirit.
