The neighbourhood of La Marina del Prat Vermell is a new neighbourhood, that still gives form to the old area of the traditional district of Sants-Montjuïc, and it looks promising. This area with a marked industrial past, has the aspiration of becoming a residential neighbourhood with many advantages. Being a mainly new area, the houses that can be rented here will usually be new, modern, with large recreational spaces, such as parks and gardens, and this attracts many families wishing to start a new life in a renovated neighbourhood. If you want to rent an apartment in a new, modern, quiet, residential area, and with all services present, La Marina del Prat Vermell can be an excellent alternative.
The neighbourhood of La Marina del Prat Vermell was constructed on the remains of agricultural and livestock land. Little by little, several factories of great importance in the Catalan and Spanish economy were opened, such as the SEAT car factory. A great percentage of the workers of the company, and of others that began to proliferate in the neighbourhood, wanted to live in the surroundings of the factory, and thus the urban center was created. At the beginning of the year 2000 the City Council of Barcelona devised a redevelopment plan for the neighbourhood and began to build housing, a plan that is still in force today. The neighbourhood is therefore new, modern and full of facilities, such as playgrounds, supermarkets, health centers and, due to the deficient public transport connections with other areas, the inauguration of the new metro line 10 which connects with line 9. The buildings of the area are broad and bright, thanks to the wide avenues that make up the neighbourhood. If you want to rent a property in this area, you will see that the prices of the apartments are quite affordable, taking into account the increase in the price of rent in the metropolitan area. This neighbourhood is ideal for couples who want to raise a family, families wishing to live in a residential neighbourhood, or even single people who want to rent in an affordable neighbourhood.
Being a newly built neighbourhood, there are not many interesting monuments to see, only certain associations to the Barcelona City Council. The reason being that certain elements evoking the industrial past of the area have not been preserved. The most important roads in the neighbourhood are Carrer de la Metallurgia, Carrer del Fuego, Paseo de la Zona Franca, Carrer Cisell and Mare de Déu del Port. The neighbourhood stretches out until the Port of Barcelona, and as it is a flat and wide area, the buildings stand out for their luminosity. Renting in La Marina del Prat Vermell is an opportunity to live in a neighbourhood of new construction, with a young neighbourhood, and with the possibility of becoming a residential neighbourhood of reference in Barcelona.
