Living in Barcelona's Diagonal Mar neighbourhood

Diagonal Mar Barcelona is without doubt one of the most interesting neighbourhoods of Barcelona, enjoying a modern and cosmopolitan image. Located in Sant Martí district, this town is one of the most modern of all towns since it resulted from the celebration of Universal Forum of Cultures, which was held back in 2004.

The name of this neighbourhood is mainly due to the fact its main section is the final stretch of Diagonal Avenue, on the edge of the Mediterranean Sea. In total, it consists of villas and parks built on 14 hectares of land as well as endless attractions and places of interest.

The elegance that characterises Diagonal Mar is partly due to the fact that it is home to top-rated luxury hotels with established branches throughout Barcelona. In addition, it also has office buildings and convention centres since from the beginning, it was seen as a key place for business trading within the city.

There are 1300 homes located within the boundaries of this residential area and divided into 5 'islands' or developments, which are called, respectively, Illa de la Llum (Light Island), Illa del Llac (Lake Island), Illa del Bosc (Forest Island), Illa del Mar (Sea Island), and Illa del Cel (Sky Island). Some of the buildings are up to 23 storeys high and usually have parking spaces, storage rooms, sports grounds, large communal areas with gardens, swimming pools, gyms, auditorium, etc. 

Moreover, let's not forget the fact that half the neighbourhood is actually a huge park with a large lake right in the centre, with many playgrounds and recreational facilities. As if that were not enough, the beach is virtually a stone's throw away and has a spectacular mall for whenever you fancy going shopping, to the cinema or have a drink.
