Sagrada Familia Homey Appartment
Barcelona, Catalonia, Spain
Additional Location Information
Our neighbourhood is a typical middle class Catalan part of town where everyone knows each other. It's a great area to get away from it all but be very close to where the action is.
The supermarket, fresh produce market, butcher, tobacconist, fresh fish market and several restaurants are all within walking distance.
A typical afternoon stroll can be along the Avinguda Gaudi which goes from the Hospital de Sant Pau to the Sagrada Familia is a pedestrian area dotted with all kinds of different restaurants, from traditional Catalan to Basque tapas places as well as a selection of Turkish, Mexican, Indian, Chinese, Italian and Korean eateries. No shortage of bars either, from typical Spanish and Catalan to Barcelona's oldest Caipirinha place and a few Irish Pubs if you need to catch a match and have a pint...or two!
There are several bus lines around the corner that make stops every few minutes and within 10 minutes you are on the Ramblas. There are 3 metro stops all within walking distance where for the price of a cup of coffee, you can be whisked away to the Camp Nou or the Ramblas or the Parc Güell. For the more easygoing tourist, we recommend going two blocks to the corner of Castillejos and Sant Antoni Maria Claret, where there's a taxi stand. Elsewhere, just going around the corner on the cross street of Lepanto and Sant Antoni Maria Claret is where two traffic flows coincide and there are always taxis driving around. Just raise your hand when you see one coming with the little green light on- they're efficient and super honest!
The other idea is to just walk downhill to the Sagrada Familia where two major metro lines coincide.
How do I Get to the Place From the Airport?
The taxi from the airport should run you about 35 Euros (tipping is not mandatory by any means!)
Other Things to Note
There a place open late night in front called Hosteleria Mendez-Villar. It's run by 2 Galician brothers Eusebio and Ernesto Palomares who have made a career out of serving up some of the most delicious Galician delicacies like squid and excellent ham, so if you ever come home late and want to have a nightcap or a midnight snack, this is the place, and all you have to do is stumble across the street and plop down on the bed in the flat!
