Sants is a part of the Sants Montjuic district, which is next to the Eixample Esquerra (the left side of the Eixample) and is just 10 minutes from Plaça Catalunya by public transport.
The nucleus of Sants is Calle Sants, a lively street with shops, an art nouveaus market, bars, restaurants and lots of life.
The Sants district takes its name from Sants Station, Barcelona’s main railway station. Sants station is well connected by public transport to all of Barcelona, as well as other destinations within Spain and Europe, and also has a direct rail connection to the airport.
Outside the station is the Sants bus station, offering national and international connections, as well as a direct connection with Reus airport.
The station has recently been renovated, partly due to the presence of the AVE, Spain’s high speed railway which offers a connection to Madrid in 2,5 hours and will in the future connect Barcelona with France, as far as Paris which will be reachable in 5.5 hours. The station has a tourist information desk.
The neighbourhood of Sants itself is a quiet residential neighbourhood with its own market, well connected with the center and Sants station. It is a popular destination for apartment rental in barcelona for both families and business people attending conferences and events at the Barcelona Fira.
