Why rent an apartment in the neighbourhood of El Fort Pienc, Barcelona?

The neighbourhood of El Fort Pienc is one of six neighbourhoods that make up the large district of l'Eixample.

Discover the neighbourhood of El Fort Pienc with ShBarcelona

In the beginning, the neighbourhood of El Fort Pienc was an area defined by fortifications, erected by Felipe V to guard the city. The constructions did not have much use though, and later in 1861, these fortified elements were demolished to build a railway station that united Barcelona with the capital of Segrià, Lleida. The neoclassical buildings are part of the current constructions of one of the most important bus stations in Barcelona, the Station del Norte. They are joined by an impressive iron dome, which is the hallmark of this building. For different reasons, the train station and the tracks were eliminated and it became the reference bus station of the Ciudad Condal. Subsequently, the neighbourhood underwent an important transformation, adding a large urban park next to the station, a market, homes for the elderly, kindergartens and a library. It became an ideal neighbourhood for families, with many public services to facilitate their daily life. The buildings in this area of Barcelona, like most of the Eixample apartments, are large, with high and elegant ceilings. The stairs are usually also wide and the apartments generally have wooden entrance doors. The floors of the apartments have beautiful decorative motifs, if they have been preserved. The apartments are usually bright and ground floor apartments mostly have a nice terrace, that looks on the interior area of the wide apartment blocks.
