To its right, we find the neighbourhood of Sarriá, a neighbourhood that reminds many Barcelona residents of a village-like atmosphere. It is located near the mountains and has one of the greenest areas in the city. If you want to be a little closer to the centre of Barcelona, then we recommend that you take a look at our flats in Sarrià – Sant Gervasi: perhaps there is one that might also interest you.

On the other side, it has the neighbourhood of La Maternitat i Sant Ramón, one of the neighbourhoods that also form part of the district of Les Corts. There are two more neighbourhoods with which it borders, but not as much as the previous two.

The third is Les Corts, the last of the three neighbourhoods that form part of the district of Les Corts, along with Pedralbes and La Maternitat i Sant Ramón. Have you seen all the houses for sale in Les Corts in Barcelona that we offer at BCN Advisors?
