Sunny days I like to go to the Palau Robert Garden. Is an small garden placed in the middle of the city. The palace works today as an exhibition space, so after reading the newspaper under the sunshine, you can visit an exhibition. I love to go there to feel myself surrounded of abundant vegetation and the songs of the birds. It makes me be in a good mood.
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.
