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.
"Fundació Joan Miró" it's my favorite museum in Barcelona.
They do beautiful & interesting exhibitions, but what really mesmerizes me is their architecture by Josep Lluís Sert.
It's located at Montjuic mountain but very close to city center, so you can breathe clean air and enjoy art master pieces.
The shop and bookstore it's also a place where I can spend many hours.
This small bookshop specializing in artists publications is located since this summer in the Raval neighbourhood. They have a very meticulous selection of publications made or conceived by artists (not publications about art). I've discovered there small presses, publications and artists that I really love.
