Vacation apartments in Barcelona
Barcelona is one of the largest tourist destinations not only in Europe, but in the world. For a comfortable alternative to hotels, consider choosing short-term apartment rentals in Barcelona that constitute a successful and secure market in Europe.
Rental apartments in Barcelona cost less than hotel rooms of comparable sizes, and yet offer you a real home where you would love to come back after a day out in Barcelona.
You get all the advantages of independent living and working in a rental apartment: you may choose to cook in a fully-equipped kitchen, you may entertain guests in the living room, you have the privacy of your own bedroom. Would you have all that in a hotel? More and more travellers prefer to rent an apartment in Barcelona for these reasons.
If you frequently travel with family or friends, you know how difficult it may be to book adjacent spacious rooms in a hotel. 1-, 2- or 3-bedroom apartments in Barcelona are easy to find. What is more, you pay per apartment, not per guest, which allows you to cut rental costs considerably, and spend quality time together.
Barcelona is a city you would not want to leave and where you would love to come back, but if you are set on more exploring, we also offer apartment, cottage and villa short-term and long-term rentals all over Europe and North America!

Sants-Montjuic

Poble Sec

Poble Sec, Pueblo Seco ("Dry Village"), is one of the most well-known neighbourhoods of the Sants-Montjuïc district, located between the hill of Montjuïc and Avinguda Parallel, running down to the seashore and bordering El Raval and Eixample barrios. Poble Sec, historically, was the first extension of Barcelona, the neighbouhood found outside the city walls that joined in mid-19th century, even before the more famous extension, Eixample, was constructed.

Just like other barrios, Poble Sec had been mostly rural prior to the industrial evolution, but its close proximity to Montjuïc, which had military fortifications and the hated Castell de Montjuïc installed by Madrid to intimidate Barcelona, influenced the barrio's development as well. During the industrial evolution the main trades of the neighbourhood were fabric dying and masonry, advancing thanks to ample stone coming from Montjuïc. The barrio's name, the Dry Village, stuck due to the absence of running water in the area: the first water fountain was installed here only in 1894.

During the 20th century Poble Sec, and its main artery Avinduga Parallel, enjoyed the increasingly Parisian vibe due to many theatres, cabarets and cafés opening in the area. Parallel in particular has become an important entertainment street both for Poble Sec and the neighbouring Raval, and even today it retains the most emblematic of its venues: Teatro Apolo, Teatro El Molino, Teatro Victoria, and Teatro Condal.

Poble Sec is a modest neighbourhood with quiet streets, green squares and its own atmosphere loved by many. The park of Montjuïc, the MNAC (Catalonia's best art museum) and Plaza España being nearby, Poble Sec is visited by many every year, but it is also a popular place to live and share apartments which are in general newer than those in Ciutat Vella and Raval and more reasonably priced than those in Eixample.
