Poble Sec is a residential area close to the heart of Barcelona city centre. It does not have much in the way of tourist attractions however it does have good access to the town centre via the Green line Metro stops at España, Poble Sec and Paral.lel with a metro ride of between 5 and 10 minutes to be in the centre of where all the action is.
One advantage of Poble Sec not being in the centre of the tourist route is that you will find that hotel prices are generally lower than in other parts of the city.
If you don't fancy catching the metro to the town centre then you can always walk from Poble Sec which is only a 20 minute walk away.
Nobody likes waiting around in long queues to get their COVID test. The Express COVID testing service we recommend only works by appointment ensuring that you get tested when you need to without having to queue. Getting your COVID test in the city centre before your flight or cruise offers many advantages over getting tested in the Airport or from a cruise liner. You have your certificates on time without a rush, you have time to correct inaccuracies on your certificate and you have time to re-arrange your flight or other travel plans if you should test positive.

Poble Sec does have some hidden treasures in terms of restaurants and Bars but you do need to know where you're going to find them. One road to walk down to find these cosy little restaurants and atmospheric small-town bars is Calle de Blai.
