One of the ten districts of Barcelona, Sant Andreu is the third largest in terms of area, bordering Nou Barris, Horta-Guinardó and Sant Martí. It is not one of the most well-known districts in Barcelona but that is not to say that it is not worth visiting. With narrow streets, a famous old church, a great market, an interesting contemporary bridge and far less crowds compared to the hustle and bustle of the city center, there are plenty of reasons to visit the area.
Church of Sant Andreu del Palomar
If you like the sound of this intriguing and beautiful district then the best way to get here is to take the L1 to Sant Andreu metro station. This is only a short walk to the church and the market. Alternatively, you can take the L1 to Navas or the L2 to Bac de Roda. There are also a number of buses that connect to the district – more information can be found on Barcelona transport website. However you choose to visit the district, you will discover a charming and tranquil part of the city.
