Poble Sec

Safe, residential with much entertainment

Paral.lel and Poble Sec are barrios included in the district called Montjuïc. Paral.lel is an avenue that cuts down from picturesque Plaça Espanya right down to the World Trade Centre at the tip of the port. Poble Sec is an area spreading out from the middle of Paral.lel.

The areas are safe and primarily residential but there is much entertainment to be found as well. This includes popular bars, theatres and exquisite restaurants. However, whilst Paral.lel is a busy thoroughfare during the day, the areas are quiet and just a 10-20 minute walk to the centre of the city and Las Ramblas. A good choice if you want to be central but away from the crowds of tourists that populate more central areas.

Montjuïc and Plaça Espanya are also close by. The event halls and the Palau de Congressos near Plaça Espanya also make the Paral.lel / Poble Sec area perfect for those in Barcelona on business. Although both Plaça Espanya and Montjuïc have a lot to offer as well.

Poble Sec neighbourhood

Restaurants and bars

There are several restaurants and many cafes which line either side of Paral.lel which also is home to some beautiful building facades, making it popular with visitors. The brother of Ferran Adria is expanding his number of restaurants (www.elbarriadria.com/en) There are 2 metro stops, aptly named Paral.lel and Poble Sec, they are on the same line and are a stop or two away from Las Ramblas.

Poble Sec culture and architecture

Museums with examples of Spanish regional architecture

If you are looking for a bit of culture then not to worry there is more than enough to be found in Plaça Espanya which has 2 art museums and Poble Espanyol which was built for the 1929 World Fair and is a “village” constructed from different examples of Spanish regional architecture.
Facilities-wise because the area is residential there is a good range of amenities from pharmacies to supermarkets. Also near Poble Sec/ Paral.lel is the Mercat Sant Antoni which is a large market selling primarily food products, a good place to have a wander and overload your senses.
