The neighbourhood of Camp de l'Arpa del Clot is one of ten neighbourhoods in the large district of Sant Martí. It is a very family-oriented neighbourhood, full of services, with a large commercial network and it is very well connected to the centre of the Catalan capital.
It is a neighbourhood with a high population density, well established and with an agricultural and rural history, that can still be sensed when you see some of the passages full of low houses that still exist, contrasting with the large blocks of residential buildings.
Prices are not among the most expensive in the city, but its commercial and service offer and its good connection to other areas of Barcelona, make the neighbourhood much sought after.
If you are looking to rent an apartment in the district of Sant Martí, the neighbourhood of Camp de l'Arpa del Clot will certainly not be disappointing.
The neighbourhood of Camp de l'Arpa del Clot is one of the best neighbourhoods for families in Barcelona. Its agricultural origins, like in most of the peripheral regions of the district of Ciutat Vella, are evident in its pedestrian passages with low houses and small patios, which are still there between large blocks of residential buildings.
The range of services is extensive: schools, institutes, day care centers, municipal markets, hospitals, libraries and civic centers are only some of them, and there is also a large and varied commercial offer.
The area has many bars and restaurants, but the offer of night venues is not as vast, making it a perfect neighbourhood for families and couples, who want to settle permanently in order to form a family in the Catalan capital.
If you have to point out the negative side of the neighbourhood, it would be that it does not have large green areas, although in the neighbouring district of El Guinardó many can be found.
On the subject of real estate, the neighbourhood has several differentiated areas. You can find wide avenues with large blocks of medium-sized housing, although it is also easy to find large apartments for large families. And there are also other areas with a rural air, with low-rise blocks of flats and with pedestrian passages with low houses with a backyard or roof terrace.
Some of the neighbourhood shops, which have been forced to close by the competition of certain supermarkets, have been converted into homes, usually ending up as beautiful lofts with modern design and a backyard.
The neighbourhood of Camp de l'Arpa del Clot is home to one of the jewels of architect Lluís Domènech i Montaner, and it is one of the most visited architectural sites in Barcelona: The Hospital de la Santa Creu i Sant Pau. This health care facility was built between 1902 and 1930.
