Neighborhoods in Barcelona

Jump to last reply

We're flying into Barcelona for an 8-9 day stay in September. We enjoy getting to know a particular city by wandering the different areas of the city, seeing key sites, and taking a couple of nearby day trips....typically renting an apartment in a quiet area, using the grocery stores and relaxing at different cafes/bars/parks, occasionally going out for dinner.

Any suggestions on particular area or neighborhoods should we focus our apartment search? These are the main ones I've found during some basic research.
L'Eixample (newer city district)
Barrio Gotico (Gothic Quarter east of the Ramblas)
El Born (east of Gothic)
El Raval (old-town area west of the Ramblas)
Barceloneta (near the ocean)
Poble Sec
Sant Antoni
Gracia (away from the center)

Thank you.
