Part II: Confessions in Sants-Mont Juïc

16 Dec

Sants is a district/neighbourhood in Barcelona situated very close to L’eixample, Montjuïc and Plaça Espanya. Furthermore it leads to Hospitalet d’Llobregat, which is another city, actually the second largest city of Catalonia. Just be careful, they don’t put up signs; suddenly you’re outside Barcelona. In formal speech the Sants district includes Montjuïc. For those who haven’t been in Barcelona yet, Montjuïc is a mountain. There is a museum, a castle, the Olympic stadium and a lot of other things to see. It has an incredible view, depends of where you are standing on Montjuïc you’ll be able to see Hospitalet d’Llobregat, the Mediterranean Sea or just Barcelona.

I’ve been told that to live near Sagrada Familia is cheaper than Sants. But I must say that though Sants is not a neighbourhood where things are happening, like for an example, the Rambla, I enjoy its tranquility. Ohh, I almost forgot to mention Estació Sants. Goes directly to the Airport in Prat de Llobregat. So easy! But the truth is that there are tourists here, you just don’t spot them often as in the Rambla. I guess it’s more attractive to stay there (I won’t recommend it), than to stay in a district like Sants. I also may confess that the restaurants are better in Sants, or actually there are more bars than restaurants. Restaurants you’ll find in L’eixample or Barri Gótic. In Barri Gótic it’s actually a bit cheaper, but as you probably may already know, it depends of the place and the food.
