Sant Marti Barcelona

The greatest sights in this district are the enormous shopping malls, including the big shopping centres of Diagonal Mar or Les Glòries. It has the finest apartments in Barcelona for those who don’t like to stay in hotels or for those looking for a longer stay.
The biggest tourist attraction in Sant Marti Barcelona is the characteristic Torre Agbar – a vibrant 38 story workplace tower opened in 2005, named “@ 22”. There are a few nice boulevards and streets, and periodic churches, however if you wish to go to Barcelona for sightseeing, base yourself in Sant Marti and utilise the great public transportation systems to get into the town centre, where the tourist attractions are largely situated. The wonderful Metro system in Barcelona guarantees that you can reach most locations in less than 15 minutes.

In addition to offices and other places of interest to businessmen offered for the building of lots of brand-new hotels. The most high end (and expensive) homes are along the Diagonal and the coastline, while more affordable accommodations are to be found between the blocks of Poblenou and Sant Martí, south and north of the Diagonal.
There are 5 beaches along the Sant Mart Barcelona oceanfront. These beaches are usually less busy than those in Barceloneta and get less hectic and have less features the further north you head up the coast.
