Owner info

Year Purchased: 1995

About the owner: My name is Carlos and I was born in Barcelona city where I have lived most of my life. In 1994 moved into the Old Town where I had been living until I started renting it out. I love Barcelona and I specially love this neighbourhood, definetely the most charming in the city.

Why the Owner Chose Ciutat Vella:
It is ideally located in the center of the historic Old Town, in a street that exists since the 14th century and it is in walking distance to most sights in the city and the area is stepped in history.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
Being in a stone's throw from most sights and various underground stops, plus stepping into history tracing back to the Middle Ages. Equally, the highest concentration in town of restaurants is at your doorstep, the Born, as well as the main commercial centers and independent shops. Finally, but not least, the beach is in 12 minutes walk from the apartment
