Tour of Poble Sec

Are you looking for a tour of the Poble Sec district, to get to know Barcelona better?

The neighbourhood of Poble Sec is a safe, calm part of Barcelona, which at the same time offers a wide range of entertainment for all visitors: down-to-earth bars, theatres, night clubs and so on. This is the perfect place if you want to get to know the centre of Barcelona, but away from the throngs of tourists on La Rambla and Plaza de Cataluña.

The main street in Poble Sec is Avinguda Paral·lel. This axis of the city is covered, on both sides, with restaurants and cafes, as well as a few emblematic buildings. This makes the street a good choice for travellers visiting Barcelona, either for the first time or returning.

Visiting this neighborhood in the company of a local guide will allow you not only to see the outer charm of the Poble Sec district, but also find out all the history and secrets hidden in its streets.
