Sants neighbourhood is located in the western part of Barcelona and maybe it is relatively less centric but is very comfortable and quiet. This calm residential area begins from Plaza España, at the foot of Motjuic mountain, which can be called a green oasis in the very heart of the city and is perfect for walking.
In the middle of the 19th century Sants became a part of Barcelona, staying the main industrial zone. The biggest textile fabrics of Catalonia were situated here and now there is a beautiful Parc Industrial, built as a compromise between nature and manufacturing past.
You can find this park just behind the main transport point of Barcelona – railway station Barcelona-Sants which allows to get to any place in the city or its surroundings quickly. Sants also hosts a famous football stadium Camp Nou where you can watch a match with the best football team of Catalonia – F.C. Barcelona.
Renting a vacation flat in Sants is highly recommended if you are arriving for the Fira de Barcelona (Fira de Montjuic) or Fira de Gran Via.
