I have amalgamated the adjacent Sarria, Tres Torres, Bonanova and Sant Gervasi neighbourhoods to make this list of things to do and see in the area. These neighbourhoods were isolated villages to the north of Barcelona till the city expanded and absorbed them in the early 20th century. It is a posh residential area and non-touristy but has some interesting attractions.

The most interesting area is Bonanova and Sant Gervasi which has the Gaudi Torre Bellesguard house and the cosmo Caixa Science museum. A walk round this part of town also passes via the Sant Gervasi church, Aveninda Tibidabo and Tamarita Gardens. This area is also at the foothills of Collserola and is the starting point for my walking route to Tibidabo.See the "tibidabo locality" for more information about getting to Tibidabo.

Happy Exploring!
