Poblenou, Barcelona – in pictures

Poblenou La Rambla, Barcelona

Poblenou is Catalan for new village. It is part of Sant Marti district to the east of Parc de la Ciutadella.

Originally entirely separate from Barcelona, the barrio was the center of Catalan industry during the 19th century. The area consisted of factories and working-class residential housing until it underwent a debatable transformation that saw many modern office and residential housing blocks sprout up. However, some areas of Poblenou still manage to retain their original charm.
