Poble sec sits at the bottom of Montjuïc, to the south-east of Plaça Catalunya. We recommend this zone for Barcelona apartment rentals due to its being highly residential and possessing a wide range of services. The area has several pedestrian streets and a pleasant village atmosphere.
The main thoroughfare is Avenida Paral.lel, connecting Plaça Espanya with the Columbus monument at the seas edge. From here you can easily walk to Las Ramblas through Raval, in no more than 10 or 15 minutes. From Paralell metro you can take a funicular up Montjuic, offering great views of the city.
