The district of Horta-Guinardó is located in the upper part of Barcelona, close to the Ronda de Dalt and the foot of the Collserola mountain. It is a quiet and very friendly district, with basic services and where prices are not excessively high.
Being located near several parks and forest areas, it is surrounded by greenery. It has a certain altitude, it is also a clear area with good views, a moderate population density and very sunny.
It has a lower level of pollution than other more central areas of Barcelona, and traffic is also less dense, except for the main arteries of the district. In short, if you are looking to rent a flat in Barcelona in a quiet and joyful place, with large green spaces and in which you forget you are living in a big city, the district of Horta-Guinardó is a perfect place.
The district of Horta-Guinardó is quite extensive, in fact, it contains as much as nine different neighbourhoods. The entire district is clearly residential, quiet, with an average population density and, in some areas, even a low density.
On the subject of real estate, the area has medium-sized apartments, although there are also smaller or larger apartments. A characteristic of the district is that it enjoys large areas of single-family houses, apartment towers and some mansions.
If you are looking to live in an area that is not excessively expensive, quiet, well-connected and with enough basic services, renting an apartment in the district of Guinardó or renting a house in the district of Baix Guinardó, is an excellent idea.
If, on the other hand, you like single-family houses or lower houses with a garden, we recommend renting a house in the district of Horta, or renting a property in the neighbourhood of La Font d'en Farges.
If you are looking for something quite cheap, try renting a flat in El Carmel, rent a house in the neighbourhood of La Teixonera or rent a property in the neighbourhood of Can Baró.
If you prefer to live next to one of the reference hospitals in Catalonia, you can rent a flat in the neighbourhood of Vall d'Hebrón-La Clota, but if you are looking to live at the edges of Collserola, still very well connected with the Ronda de Dalt and the exits to Barcelona, the option is to rent a property in the neighbourhood of Sant Genís del Agudells-Montbau.
It is interesting to visit the Park del Guinardó in this district, a large forest area ideal for sports, taking a stroll or walking your pet. The neighbourhood of Horta is also a site to visit, with its famous Plaza Ibiza and its tapas bars.
Parque de las Aguas is another one of the urban parks that exist in the district of Horta-Guinardó, and you must not forget the Hospital de la Vall d'Hebrón, one of the most leading health centers in some specialties in Spain.
