Provençals de Poblenou

Provençals de Poblenou

From the calmness of its environment, the authenticity of the tradition and the memories of the city emerges the district of Provençals de Poblenou, a former industrial quarter and one of the last untouched parts of the city within walking distance to the beach. This tranquil and spacious neighborhood is the perfect place to get lost in. You’ll find dozens of art workshops, urban gardens, old factories, and warehouses. Check out Can Ricart, El Hangar, and L’Escocesa; these are just a few examples of the jewels of the district. The beautiful Parc del Centre del Poblenou designed by Jean Nouvel is a large green spot of the area. This place is for Barcelona what is Meatpacking district for Manhattan. If you ask us, now is the time to make it your neighborhood!
