Houses and apartments in Les Corts district for sale and rent - Real Estate Barcelona
The Les Corts district is located in western part of Barcelona city. This is an upper class neighbourhood that has many advantages, given its great location. In addition to being very close to Camp Nou Stadium FC Barcelona, it is just a few minutes away from the Barcelona Sants station, the main railway station in the Catalan capital and the second largest in Spain.
Until the nineteenth century, the district of Les Corts consisted of large agricultural areas with many farmhouses and small villages located near the monastery of Pedralbes as well as being around the stream that runs through Les Corts Velles, now called Carrer de Les Corts. Following aggregation to Barcelona in 1897, the district would begin a deep and extensive urbanisation that eventually established its image and character today.
Today, the neighbourhood of Les Corts offers much tranquility and many attractions that are typical of an upper class area, while at the same time, maintaining the reminiscences of its historic and rural past. The plazas and unique sites are ideal for enjoying a nice and quiet stroll. For example, Comas Square, which houses the memorial Farinetes Pau, will remind you of the agricultural past of this district. At one end of Les Corts, bordering the town of L'Hospitalet de Llobregat, Can Rigal park with its modern and beautiful gardens stretch across the entire neighbourhood. For all those who wish to enjoy the nature in the middle of the city, this is a real treat to experience. The uptown part at the height of the Royal Monastery, known as the popular Les Corts Pedralbes, is one of the most exclusive areas of Barcelona and plays host to the wealthy bourgeoisie. In the university, near the Diagonal Avenue area, there are two of the most attractive gardens of the city: the Parque de Cervantes with beautiful roses and cultivated grounds as well as the Palace of Pedralbes gardens, which transmit the stately charm of yesteryears.
The district of Les Corts is one of those areas where purchasing a property is a safe investment when it comes to appreciation in its market value. It is a neighbourhood of great splendor and luxury, but also has very good facilities and services and, above all, is very well connected to the coast, to the airport, the centre of the city, and the main attractions of Barcelona. For its part, the Avenida Diagonal has a huge mall, where you can find almost anything from fashion boutiques, supermarkets, restaurants, to clubs and bars. Les Corts is a typical business district, where you can find apartments with different features and prices. For young executives, this is an ideal alternative as a place of residence, since there is a lively atmosphere day and night, thanks to its many restaurants of various budgets, cafes and bars as well as local pubs. In short, there is a wide variety of properties, from one to four bedroom apartments to splendid houses and penthouses with terraces. The designs of the houses are typically functional and modern, bright and spacious with plenty of amenities on offer.
The abundance of greenery, the nearby railway station, excellent services and friendly locals are the main values that are highlighted in this Barcelona district. In fact, Les Corts proves that living in a city doesn't mean neighbours are too busy to get to to know each other. In this area people have an open character and still stand around the streets in order to talk with one another. The Polytechnic University of Barcelona also gives much life to the area, encouraging the daytime atmosphere of a neighborhood to become livelier, although, at nights, it becomes much quieter. Therefore, Les Corts brings together students, businessmen, executives in suits and ties, and elegant buildings and shopping centres that generate a vibrant commercial activity, without losing the typical character of the neighbourhood. Businesses and shops are on the front line, but the old lifestyle people lead here is still alive, despite the business meetings and the crowded streets.
