Barcelona Sants Area
Barcelona Sants Neighbourhood - residential area with good transport links

The area of Sants is a 10 minute metro ride out of the centre of town and has its own distinct community feel from the rest of the city. The Barcelona Sants train station (Estació de Sants) is the focal point of the area and is one of Barcelona's largest and most well-connected stations with direct trains to the airport and destinations outside of Barcelona.

The area of Sants itself doesn't have that many attractions but the ease with which you can travel to areas of interest is a plus point. You could walk to gorgeous Plaça España and Montjuïc where there are attractions such as Poble Espanyol, the Magic Fountain and the Fira Barcelona events halls. In the other direction you may want to stroll to Camp Nou, Barcelona FC ground, or do a spot of shopping in the L'Illa complex on Diagonal.

As for social life, there are many lovely restaurants in the area, as well as a few decent bars and the internationally known Space club is a 2 minute walk from the station.

Sants even has its own little festival in August where the streets get dressed up and everyone goes dancing at night next to make shift stalls selling rum and coke.

All in all, Sants is a quiet, mostly residential area, out of town but easily accessible. It would be a good choice for the more elderly, families or those who enjoy a good walk.
