Sant Andreu Barcelona

This area is located further out of the centre towards Nou Barris. It has a very local and residential atmosphere making it great for families.

Despite having joined the city of Barcelona since 1897, Sant Andreu Barcelona still retains its independent village spirit. Walking around the area you cannot help but forget that you are in a big city as it has a tranquil and traditional Catalan village feel to it. It is a great area to explore if you want to get away from the crowds of tourists in the city centre.

The market and surrounding area on Plaza de Mercadal are a great part to visit as well as Plaza Orfila, a picturesque square where you can sit and enjoy a coffee whilst watching the world go by. Other sights include the Bac de Roda bridge and Barcelona’s biggest shopping centre La Maquinista.

For shopping, there is not only the massive shopping centre La Maquinista but also the main street Carrer Gran de Sant Andreu where you can find many independent shops, boutiques, grocers and butchers all adding to the local atmosphere of the area.

Sant Andreu is well-connected by the metro (L1) and two train stations, Barcelona-Sant Andreu Comtal‎ and Sant Andreu Arenal, both serving rodalies services.
