Pedralbes, the most exclusive area
The most luxurious residential area of Barcelona is the popular neighborhood of Pedralbes, which belongs to the district of Les Corts. There, you can easily find your ideal luxury house, from large mansions with gardens to stately buildings with large floors.
Once in Pedralbes, Avinguda Pearson is considered one of the most expensive streets of the entire city, where you will be able to find some of the most luxurious residences. In this exclusive area you can also find beautiful places like the Cervantes Park, the gardens and the royal palace of Pedralbes or the North Campus of the University area.
Sarria, a village inside Barcelona
When we are talking about exclusive areas in Barcelona another one we just can’t ignore is Sarrià, identified as the most expensive neighborhood in Barcelona. Its core presents the typical look and feel of an old town with buildings of little height, actually it used to be a town before Barcelona grew and absorbed it. At the top of Sarrià, in areas such as Can Ponsich, huge and exclusive states predominate.
Sant Gervasi, closer to the city
Probably the most urban neighborhood of all the ones that belong to uptown Barcelona. Its easy to get distracted with the great amount of shops that we can find in its streets when we walk around.
In some areas like Turo Parc or Vallmajor it’s quite easy to find luxury homes. When we go more uptown, to La Bonanova for instance, we will find more high level buildings that merge with the beauty of other constructions such as the Bellesguard Tower by Gaudí and other spectacular places like the Tamarita gardens.
Eixample, the center of modernism
Many investors seeking luxury and upscale houses put their attention on the popular and busy Passeig de Gràcia, in the Eixample district. This is the core of luxury shopping in Barcelona, where we can find most of the exclusive boutiques of the city. Moreover this avenue also hosts some famous buildings such as La Pedrera and Casa Batlló, both designed by the famous architect Antoni Gaudí.
