The district of Nou Barris is an extensive district, which houses nine neighbourhoods or differentiated areas. The district has been gaining ground towards the mountain of Collserola, and borders with areas such as Montcada i Reixac and Santa Coloma de Gramanet. Avinguda Meridiana separates the district from that of Sant Andreu.
It is an area of working-class people, with probably the lowest income per capita of the Ciudad Condal. The population density is high and so is the percentage of immigrants. The most common nationalities are Honduran, Pakistani, Bolivian and Ecuadorian. In some neighbourhoods the green areas are very spacious, and there are several areas of flats and single-family houses. If you want to rent an apartment in Barcelona at a very good price, the district of Nou Barris is surely an excellent option.
The district of Nou Barris is an important area of Barcelona, that includes nine neighbourhoods. It is a residential area that offers services, such as markets, supermarkets, libraries, schools, nurseries, public transport and some small commercial areas.
The neighbourhood is a diverse, working class neighbourhood. The number of immigrants is high, but at its core a community of integration and coexistence. On the subject of real estate properties, the apartments that can be found in this area are simple, medium in size and cheapest in Barcelona.
Considering the different neighbourhoods, if you decide to rent a flat in Vilapicina i la Torre Llobeta, you will find a quiet neighbourhood, with many services and some commercial areas, and with many low houses and single-family flats. The apartments are of medium size, although you can find some more impressive buildings with larger flats.
If you are looking to live in a neighbourhood with greener areas and in the middle of nature, you can choose to rent a flat in Les Roquetes-Canyelles, or rent a property in Ciutat Meridiana-Torre Baró or Vallbona. If, however, your intention is to rent a flat in a cheap area with services, you can try to rent a house in the neighbourhood of La Prosperitat, rent a flat in the neighbourhood of Porta, or rent a property in the neighbourhood of Verdun.
If you like populous and family neighbourhoods, do not hesitate to rent an apartment in the neighbourhood of La Guineueta, or try to rent a house in the neighbourhood of Can Peguera-El Turó de la Peira. You can also rent an apartment in La Trinitat Nova.
The district of Nou Barris has grown, gaining some terrain towards the mountain range of Collserola, one of the most extensive forest areas of Barcelona. The park has several paths and picnic areas, ideal for hiking, running or cycling.
The Park Central of Nou Barris, one of the largest in Barcelona, is also one of the most interesting sites of the district. It has only a very short history, as it was inaugurated at the end of the 20th century, in the year 1999.
