We stayed here for a quick family get away. A real contrast to the center of Barcelona in the sense it is quieter. Felt very safe. Worth a walk to the local Rambla to experience a bit more hustle and bustle and get something to...More

It was quieting and relaxing to get to Poplenou from crush of Gothic Quarter. Rambla de Poplenou was fascinating, the terraces were nice and it was a good place for shopping.

Some streets are dominated by small car outlets , repairs and spares and servicing but around the rambla and down to the beach it is more pretty with a park area. Plenty of shops resaurants and cafes and bars. Not hectic but interesting.

We ate in this restaurant every evening of a three night visit to Poblenou, the quality of the food was excellent as was the service we received from friendly professional staff. They couldn’t have done more to make this a wonderful experience. Would definitely recommend.

We visited the Poblenou fiesta.The architecture is a mix of old and new, and the ambience less hectic than Barcelona City centre.The ramblas leads straight to the beach, and is an interesting walk.The fiesta brought together the whole community and was a delight to witness.

Wanted to go there since it was mentioned as Barcelonas upcoming creative area similar to bricklane (London) but would say that the atmosphere is not as creative and ”rough”. It is more a beautiful and chill place to take a coffee in. (Was there in...More

El Poblenou is a neighborhood east of Parc de la Ciutadella. It's a good alternative, if you one day want to visit a non-touristed neighborhood in Barcelona. El Poblenou have to Metro-Stations: Llacuna and Poblenou (L4)

The futuristic Agbar Tower stands out from Barcelona's
skyline in Poblenou. It is no coincidence then that
this area of town is the newly crowned technological
park of the city, its own mini Silicon Valley
containing a tech incubator (Barcelona Activa) as well
as a host of local and international high tech
companies. To accommodate the onrush of new residents
and workers, the area of Poblenou has seen a surge of

We ate at Don Corado and enjoyed it while we stayed near there. It's on the Ramblas Pobleniu and yes it has outside seating but we didn'y think it was overpriced. There are several restaurants in the area. Have a great trip.
