The district of Les Corts is one of the most exclusive districts in Barcelona. It is divided by three neighbourhoods with each quite different characteristics.
First there is the neighbourhood of Pedralbes, the most exclusive of all neighbourhoods in Barcelona, and where its inhabitants earn the highest income per capita in the Catalan capital.
If you decide to rent a flat in Pedralbes, you will find very spacious buildings with an average of 200 square meters, and you can enjoy all kinds of services: a doorman, a communal area with a gym, swimming pool, children's area and, in many cases, a tennis court. This neighbourhood extends from the border of Tibidabo to the Avinguda Diagonal.
Secondly, renting a flat in the neighbourhood of Les Corts is ideal for university students, who decide to pursue their higher education in Barcelona. Les Corts is also an interesting area for people who want to rent in a part of the city with many services and good connections, since the area of Pedralbes, for example, is more residential and has less public transport.

Finally, you can also rent an apartment in the neighbourhood of La Maternitat i Sant Ramón, which borders the city of l'Hospitalet de Llobregat. This district is the most affordable in the whole district of Les Corts, more family oriented and also suitable for students, although it is a little further away from universities.
