Sants-Montjuïc, situated in the southwest of Barcelona, is one of the most iconic and largest neighbourhoods in this city. This district comes complete with mountains, sea, and lots of leisure facilities that are suitable for people of all ages. Many of its attractions focus on museums, theatres, and sports grounds. This district has become one of the most favourite places for tourists and visitors who don't just wish to have fun exploring its attractions, but also to buy a house or rent an apartment through our real estate agency Engel & Völkers Barcelona.
Sants-Montjuïc emerged during the tenth century, when the church of Santa Maria del Sants was built. Its heyday came in 1840 with many industrial developments, until in 1987, it became part of Barcelona. From that moment on, the district was transformed with the inclusion of new areas, such as La Bordeta, Poble-Sec, and Marina neighbourhoods. Today, this district boasts unique personality and cultural identity, with a growing population of around 177,636 (2005 cencus). It retains the characteristics of quiet suburban neighbourhoods, making it one of the most suitable places in Barcelona to rent an apartment or buy a home.
