Les Corts thrives with shopping areas and commercial highrises, in fact some of the most exclusive shops in town are located in the neighborhood, in Pedralbes Shopping Center, L’Illa Diagonal and El Corte Inglés. Camp Nou, one of the most visited and important monuments in Barcelona, is located in this District.

The stunning Diagonal Avenue runs through Les Corts, and marks one of the hallways of the city, in fact few cities in the world have such a beautiful entrance as Barcelona has in this part of town.
This wide avenue has the peculiarity of having a different orientation compared to the Eixample District that has a strict grid of perpendicular blocks that follow a mountain to sea pattern, therefore its name.
How to be a local in Les Corts
This busy avenue can be of high contrast compared to other parts of Les Corts, which are rather more calm and keep a small town atmosphere. Just a few blocks away from Diagonal, lies one of the most charming and traditional squares of Les Corts. Far from the touristic spots, the Concordia square could be well considered the heart of Les Corts.
Plaza La Concordia
Any given day at sunset is the best time to visit this square, that’s when all the locals stroll around the neighborhood to chat and have a beer with tapas in any given bar. Most recommended is a visit to the Civic Centre of Can Deu, where aside from different artistic activities, it has a pleasant coffeehouse and bar on the inside with an excellent atmosphere and good prices.
How to get there:
