La Font de la Guatlla is a small neighbourhood belonging to the expansive district of Sants-Montjuic, and it is located between the Gran Vía de les Corts Catalanes, the mountain of Montjuïc, Plaza España and Plaza Cerdà. It is a quiet, residential neighbourhood, but at the same time it is close to several nerve centers of the city of Barcelona with which it has good connections, and it provides services that contribute to making life in the neighbourhood pleasant. In addition, the park of Montjuïc provides this area with a lot of space to practice sports, to enjoy culture, and to take long walks with wonderful views of the Ciudad Condal. In short, this is where you can spend lots of time outside in one of the most privileged parts of Barcelona. If you want to live in a quiet neighbourhood, but still want to be close to tourist and cultural venues, services and large green areas to enjoy the good weather in the city, the neighbourhood of Font de la Guatlla is an option to consider.
This small neighbourhood located at the foot of Montjuïc is a quiet area, but it is also close to some of the most important parts of Barcelona. Together with Plaza Catalunya, Plaza España is one of the most important sites of Barcelona, with famous museums and fairs and congress areas, and it provides the district with many services, such as public transport, restaurants, bars and supermarkets. The Cerdà square and the Gran Vía de les Corts Catalanes are also major arteries, that provide the neighbourhood with commercial areas and other necessary and useful services. The types of properties that you can rent in this neighbourhood are apartments in high buildings, in which some apartments are large and others smaller. You might not expect this, but there is also a residential zone with very picturesque gardens in this area of Barcelona close to Montjuïc Park. And this is precisely the cause of some of the higher prices. Rental prices in general are not especially expensive, except for the block of single-family houses, and it is a perfect neighbourhood for families, people who work in the congress area or nearby museums, and anyone who likes to live in a quiet and well connected, cultural neighbourhood.
In this cultural neighbourhood of La Font de la Guatlla, a must-see is the old, modernist style factory of Casaramona. It currently houses the CaixaForum. This museum has several exhibition rooms, the Mediatheque Room of Media Art and an auditorium. Another point of interest is the famous German Pavilion at the Universal Exhibition of 1929, by architect Mies Van der Rohe. It is a wonderful representation of the so-called Modern Movement, which surprises you with its design of pure, simple and elegant lines. If you are interested in renting a house in a quiet and well connected, cultural district, consider renting an apartment in La Font de la Guatlla.
