Sarrià – Sant Gervasi is the largest district of Barcelona. It is a quiet neighborhood, far from the places most frequented by tourists. It extends to the Tibidabo mountain and on the Collserola mountain, the biggest green space in Barcelona. This neighborhood of Barcelona was born from the union of two old independent towns: Sarrià and San Gervasio de Cassoles. In the last century, the wealthiest families of Barcelona had palaces and mansions built as their second residence in Sarrià- Sant Gervasi to be able to spend their vacations there and benefit from its tranquility.
It is composed of 6 different neighborhoods, which are El Putxet i el Farò, Sarrià, Sant Gervasi – La Bonanova, Sant Gervasi – Galvany, Les Tres Torres and Vallvidrera, el Tibidabo i les Planes, and the six are characterized by being residential, being close to the mountain, but being urban and having high standing housing. It is the most expensive district of Barcelona and it is located on Avinguda Tibidabo, one of the most expensive streets in all of Spain.
Today, it is considered the “chic” neighborhood of Barcelona. There are private schools, clinics, embassies, many parks and green spaces. It is also a neighborhood that conserves a village aspect, especially in the part of Sarrià, where there are a great number of narrow streets and small squares.
If you like nature, Sarrià – Sant Gervasi is your ideal neighborhood because of its many natural and urban parks and the Collserola mountain, you will have plenty to choose from! The Jardin del Turó del Putxet is worth a visit for its views of Barcelona, L’Oreneta, located on the edge of the Collserola Natural Park, the road to Les Aigües that crosses the mountain.
