Les Corts - Business District in Barcelona
Les Corts - Business District in Barcelona

The area Les Corts is a 15 minute metro ride from the centre of town and is well serviced by both Les Corts and Plaça Del Centro metro stops which are both on the green line, and the Estacio Sants train station. The Sants station is a short walk from Les Corts and has direct trains to the Airport, and other popular destinations such as Sitges on the coast.

The area may not be so pretty but there are good facilities and more historic, picturesque areas are a walk away.

Les Corts is an important financial business district in Barcelona and therefore has many good hotels and restaurants. Also, on Diagonal there is a large shopping complex called L'Illa. In L'Illa there are several very good restaurants, a huge supermarket, a small exhibition centre and of course lots of clothes shops, including some of Barcelona's favourites such as Purificacion Garcia, Zara and Custo.

The beautiful Plaça Espanya is a 15 minute walk away from the Les Corts area, and there you can enjoy all the entertainment that Montjuïc has to offer. If you like a good walk you can even walk into the historic, leafy area called Eixample in about half an hour, or the centre of town in about an hour.

In Les Corts there are bars a plenty and even some clubs, the most impressive and indeed expensive of which is called Elefant just up from Les Corts. Elefant is a sumptuous place for a drink but be sure to dress up, you'll be partying the night away with the rich and good-looking of Barcelona. If clubbing isn't your thing be sure to have a wander round and try out some of the lovely tapas places on every corner.

Also of interest is the Barcelona Football club's grounds Camp Nou. Camp Nou is in Les Corts and is a must-see for any football enthusiast. Tours around the grounds and the museum are available.
