Poblenou in the district Sant Marti is a popular place to live in Barcelona for both locals and foreigners. Poblenou means "new village" in Catalan. This area of Barcelona was mostly factories and was known as the  "Catalan Manchester." Today Poblenou is a modern residential area which is home to the @22 Barcelona hi-tech business district.

The tree lined Rambla de Poblenou is a favourite with residents for strolling, shopping and meeting neighbours. It stretches from the Avenida Diagonal all the way down to the Mar Bella beach and there are many outdoor cafes.


Many old industrial chimneys have been preserved in the district of Sant Marti.  This one is by the old textile factory of Can Felipa, which is now the Poblenou civic centre and home to the municipal Poblenou sports and fitness center .

Although most of the old Poblenou in Barcelona has been levelled to make way for new residential  apartment blocks and offices, there are still some gems from the past around, which have been preserved for posterity.
