Description of Sants, Les Corts & Pedralbes

I have amalgamated the adjacent Sants, Les Corts and pedralbes neighbourhoods to make this list of things to do and see in the area. These adjacent neighbourhoods were isolated villages to the south of Barcelona until the rapid expansion of the city from L'Eixample neighbourhood absorbed them into the Barcelona Metropolitan area. They are mostly residential and non-touristy but have some interesting attractions.

Sants Neigbourhood is probably best known for the Barcelona-Sants railway hub which is he main Renfe hub of Barcelona city, but it is also a residential neighbourhood with cheap hostels and the neighbourhood hosts a Fiesta Mayor similar to Gracia.

Les Corts Neighbourhood is the financial and business district of Barcelona with many offices in Aveninda Diagonal, therefore, it has many good hotels and restaurants. Les corts is also the home of Barcelona football club stadium which has a beautiful Maternity Hospital garden next to it. Also, in Avenida Diagonal there is a large shopping complex called L'Illa.

Pedralbes Neighbourhood sits above Avenida Diagonal up to the foothills of Collserola. It is a posh part of town with many of the luxury detached houses having swimming pools. It is also the location of one of the best preserved monastery museums in Catalonia.

Avenida Diagonal transforms into a motorway leading south of Barcelona but before it does there is the university district with several parks and gardens such as the Cervantes Rose garden and Pedralbes gardens.

Happy Exploring!
