es una zona bien tranquila y queda a menos de 2 km de la zona centrica... es muy linda para caminar. calles y veredas muy anchas, algunos negocios, varios restaurants lindos (muchos italianos) y sobre... more »it is a very quiet area and is less than 2 km from the central area. it's too nice to walk. streets and sidewalks very wide, some businesses, several nice restaurants (many Italians) and above all many squares. And most importantly is the Sagrada Familia a MUST for anyone who goes to Barcelona.. and the building that was the bullring.
