Pedralbes, much more than tranquillity in the upper area of Barcelona
When one thinks of the luxury areas of Barcelona, Pedralbes comes to mind immediately, since it’s one of the most exclusive neighbourhoods in town.
The Catalan capital has grown a lot in the last years and, now, Pedralbes finds itself very well located, touching the Diagonal, one of the most important business and academic areas of the city. Formerly located at the outskirts of Barcelona, it was where aristocracy and the bourgeoisie used to spend their summer vacation.
Enjoying the best from the past and the present
Pedralbes’ past has left an exquisite print, in the form of palaces, estates and mansions with gardens which are now enjoyed by the new owners and tenants (truth be told, we are proud to say that some of those jewels can be currently found for sale or rent in our collection).
The new constructions, both luxury urbanisations and top-quality apartments, designed with style and adapted to the neighbourhood, bring a touch of modernity and fresh air to it.
For those who are looking for a new home in Barcelona, this is a spectacular place to live in. The streets are wide and allow the views to get lost in the vastness of the sky, framed only by noble façades and historical buildings. On top of the stunning sights, there’s a large number of parks and green areas where you can enjoy a stroll and be surrounded by nature - such as the Gardens of the Pedralbes Palace.
A lot to do in a quiet neighbourhood
Pedralbes is a very quiet neighbourhood (which many families are very grateful for), especially in the residential areas. And that tranquillity shows itself in all its splendour at Santa María de Pedralbes Monastery, a gothic style construction that was founded in the XIV century, with a cloister where time seems to be standing still.
The area offers, in addition, exclusive amenities, such as the Reial Club de Tennis de Barcelona. But one of its most recognized virtues is the high level of its educational institutions, with notable mentions like the elite international centres: Superior Business School ESADE, St. Peter’s School or the French High School.
With all this, Pedralbes has always been and still is one of the favourite places for the upper class. A proof of that is the fact that not even Gaudi, who built the Güell Pavilions, passed by without leaving his print.
Without a doubt, this is a place that deserves consideration from those high-quality lovers who wish to buy or rent a property in Barcelona.
