Barcelona step by step: Poble-Sec
Traditionally a working class and residential neighbourhood, Poble-Sec has recently become a popular quarter with young people. Although most people are not aware of the fact, this is the authentic Eixample, the first widening of the old city, set between the narrow streets of the Raval and the straight lines of the Eixample. With Avinguda Paral.lel on one side, with its many theatres such as the Apolo or Victoria, and the parkland of Montjuïc on the other, providing various viewpoints on its slopes, Poble-Sec occupies a narrow stretch of land between. In keeping with the authenticity of the neighbourhood is Quimet & Quimet, a bodega where you can try somo aperitif and tapas, as is the retro-style La Federica. I should also mention the recently restored El Molino and Plaça del Sortidor, which is always bubbling with activity and full of the warm village-like life that characterizes the area. Closest metro station: Poble-Sec and Paral.lel (L2 and L3).
