Living in Horta-Guinardó, a traditional neighbourhood in Barcelona

According to history, Horta-Guinardó was an independent municipality of Barcelona until 1904. From the 1930s onwards, this neighbourhood saw an influx of middle-class and upper-class families.

The name of this interesting neighbourhood refers to the traditional "cottage and the orchard".

Until the middle of the twentieth century it was an area for ​​labourers, tourists, and manual workers of all kinds, who managed to self-sustain themselves. Because of its location, privileged within the city, this district was the destination for all real estate developers to build and renovate properties. These projects transformed the district into a totally residential neighbourhood, where the number of sales and rentals has increased.
