Poblenou in the district Sant Marti, it means "new village" in Catalan. This area of Barcelona was mostly factories, today it is a modern residential area which is home to the @22 Barcelona hi-tech business district. Is one of the most overlooked areas in they city, and in my opinion has many great things to offer.. run-down in parts, but very open with tons of light and close to the beach, Poblenou is perfect for anyone who wants to live a slightly more quite lifestyle but also have complete and easy access to the craziness of the city centre.

In 1938 during the Spanish Civil war, Francisco Franco laid siege to the city of Barcelona. On the 30 September 1938, one of Franco's bombs fell on the church killing 30 people most of whom were children from the School of Sant Philip Neri and some were refugee children from Madrid where the church had been turned into a make-shift orphanage. As people pulled survivors from the rubble, a second bomb hit the square, killing 12 more bringing the death toll to 42. It was the second worst bombing hit in Barcelona during the war. Evidence of the bombings can be seen in the pockmarked walls of the church.
