Poble Sec

Barcelona’s sundry neighborhoods – the medieval Barri Gòtic (Gothic Quarter), trendy Born district, posh Eixample – are pretty well-defined. So how the inconspicuous ’hood of Poble Sec, located between boho-chic Raval and leafy Montjuic near the city’s southern end, manages to remain, well, indefinable is a rare and welcome mystery. In guidebooks, Poble Sec, whose name means “dry village,” is usually lumped in with the gardens, museums and Olympic constructions of Montjuic – if it’s even mentioned at all. But with low-key hotels and apartments available to rent, Poble Sec is a wonderful place to stay in the Catalan capital. Expect an ethnically diverse, working-class community, quiet streets, real local flavor and a slew of unexpectedly superb dining and nightlife options.
