My Home Town

The neighborhood is filled with restaurants and lots of shops, supermarkets, etc. And it's in the heart of the city! Subway (underground) and buses (one of them takes you directly to the BEACH) are within a 4 minute walk. And remember Barcelona is less than 2 hours by car to France, and there are also very cheap flights connecting the city to virtually all cities in Europe. Train to Paris and rest of France is also convenient, as well as AVE train to Madrid, Seville etc.
