In the drop-down menu, you will find all the nice neighborhoods in Barcelona in a row!
The neighborhoods in brief
Barcelona has different faces. The neighborhoods are really all different in character. As a result, you will not quickly get bored of this city and you will always discover new things. The hectic pace of southern historic city life with an overload of shops, restaurants and tourism can mainly be found in the Gothic Quarter and El Borne. In the old center you will also find the Barceloneta peninsula, where you can enjoy the beautiful harbor and the (often busy) city beach. The Poblenou district begins along a quieter part of the coast. A neighborhood that has been very subject to change since the 1990s. From gypsy camp to new business district with a touch of hip. In Gracia you can go for the bohemian vibe including health food stores and vegan restaurants. You can find nature, peace and wealth in the slightly higher neighborhoods around Tibidabo.
