Poblenou in the district Sant Marti of Barcelona. Poblenou is a popular place to stay for tourists and to live in Barcelona for both locals and foreigners. Poblenou means "new village" in Catalan. Until the Barcelona Olympics in 1992 this area of Barcelona was mostly factories and was known as the "Catalan Manchester." Today Poblenou is more like the Catalan Silicon Valley. It's a modern residential area and home to the @22 Barcelona hi-tech business district and many new residential buildings, offices and hotels. It is also close to Barcelona's beach area.
