Owner info

Year Purchased: 1997

About the owner: My partner and I are both novelists and professors living in New York and teaching at NYU and The New School University. We visit our home in Barcelona regularly to spend time with our two children, Gabriel (15) and Marina (12).

Why the Owner Chose Sant Pere - Santa Caterina i la Ribera, Barcelona, Barcelona, Spain:
This apartment is perfectly located for a vacation visit to Barcelona. It is situated in the Bario Gotico with its tiny winding cobblestone streets. Yet the apartment has ample sunlight entering in through the 6 huge French doors, opening onto the wrap-around Balcony on two sides, and looking over the wide open green expanse of the Parc de la Ciutadella.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
Located close to museums, fabulous restaurants, the port, beach, parks, shopping, boutiques, and close to several subways.
