Poble sec is an area in the city of Barcelina located in the district Sants-Montjuic. The area lies in between of the l'avinguda del Paral•lel, El carrer de Lleida, l'avinguda de Josep Carne. These are the main large streets in this area. We have stayed in this area once before while being away here for the weekend. The area is near the famous La Rambla and just around 10 minutes walking. The port of Barcelona is also near depending were you stay in the area it’s also around ten minutes walk. The area is easily reached with public transport as the green metro line stops here. The metro stop Poble sec is located right in the centre of the area.
The area is busy but the plus side is that you can find many restaurants, bars and shops here. The little streets can feel a bit dangerous at night and I wouldn’t recommend so much walking on your own, but mostly it’s a safe area.
