NEIGHBORHOOD: In Barcelona’s Eixample neighbourhood, just outside the Quadrat d'Or (Golden Square) heritage district, you’ll come across a bustling, lively neighbourhood which is home to two Catalan art nouveau, or modernista, landmarks by Antoni Gaudí and Lluís Domènech i Montaner: the Hospital de Sant Pau and the church of the Sagrada Família, which attracts thousands of visitors every day and has made the neighbourhood from which it takes its name so famous.
The area known as Poblet was once a neighbourhood of fields and low-rise houses. During the 19th century, factories were set up here, fostering the growth of the area. It was here, in 1881, that building work commenced on the church of atonement for the citizens of this expanding city.
In 1882, the original Sagrada Família Gothic church project, designed by Francesc de Paula Villar, was taken over by the young Antoni Gaudí, who transformed it into the most fascinating church of all time. An architectural bible called the Sagrada Família which has become a Barcelona icon. The building, which is still under construction, has lent its name to the area and made it world famous. After all, the Sagrada Família is a vibrant neighbourhood with its own unique personality.
The Avinguda Gaudí, a delightful pedestrianised boulevard, links the basilica with the Hospital de la Santa Creu i Sant Pau, the most representative civil building from the modernista period, designed by Lluís Domènech i Montaner. Both these outstanding modernista landmarks have been declared UNESCO World Heritage Sites.
ACCESS: The easiest way to arrive at the apartment is taking a taxi.
You can also take the Aerobus: a bus service that connects the Airport with the center of Barcelona leaving every 5 minutes, every day of the year.
In approximately 35 minutes can go or return to either of the Airport Terminals (T1 or T2) comfortably and economically, without having to change stations or stops. The route covers strategic stops in the city.
The price is around 6€ per person.
In that case, you should stop in Plaza Universitat. Then, take the metro line 2 and go directly to the Sagrada Familia. There are just 4 stops.
