A walk through Les Corts district

Written by Adriana

This Barcelona neigbourhood takes its name from the ancient town of Las Corts de Sarria, segregated from Sarria district in 1836, when both (Las Corts and Sarria) were annexed to the city of Barcelona. It is the smallest district of Barcelona and the least populated, mostly residential, inhabited by families or students studying at the nearby University District. If you’re going to spend some time in Barcelona, whether for holiday, for work or studies, and need to stay in this area, there are many types of rental apartments in Les Corts that you may find interesting and fulfilling. For more information visit our website, call our offices to make an appointment with one of our experts (+34 93 452 13 47) or visit them on the 99 Casanova Street or in 200 Bailen Street.

Among the landmarks that are worth visiting in the district of Les Corts are:

The Camp Nou is the famous F.C. Barcelona stadium and is visited each year by millions of fans of this team and for tourists who want to enjoy and admire a good football game. Besides going to the field, here you can also visit the Barça Museum where trophies, T-shirts, pictures and all sorts of items that have been involved with this team and its history are preserved. To complete the historical tour you can buy your favorite player T-shirt in the Barça shop.

Jardins de la MaternitatJardins de la Maternitat: This huge park is located below and within the precincts of Maternitat facilities (a medical center for pregnant women), and consists of several green spaces in which to lie down to rest, several sports tracks and benches. In these gardens, many students from the nearby high school (IES Les Corts) come together, and also families living in the area or people jogging.

Ice Skating arena at Barça Mini Estadi: until September the 1st this arena won’t open its doors again, but if you stay in Barcelona longer than that date, don’t hesitate to come to this facility to have a good time with some ice skates. After a few laps around the track you’re safe and able to skate on this slippery surface without falling and even make the occasional pirouette.

Festes Majors at Les Corts: These festivities will take place early in the first two weeks of October and include all kinds of activities: music performances, dancing, contests, games, sports, culture, etc.

Jardines del Palacio de Pedralbes: these gardens, located at the highest point of the district, above the Avenida Diagonal, is accessed through a spectacular wrought iron gate which gives an idea of the elegance that you will find inside: sculptures, ponds, flowers, lawn laurel and orange, and even a small waterfall. Everything around the Royal Palace, located at the back of the park, home of the Spanish Royal Family between 1919 and 1931, which has its origin in an ancient farmhouse of the XVII century and you must visit if you are living in Les Corts district.
