Melon District Poble Sec
The Melon District Poble Sec student residence is located on Avinguda Paral·lel, a large avenue with a rich artistic history, having once housed a huge cluster of theatres. Today it continues to be a bustling, lively street, thanks to its numerous restaurants and theatres - including some of the original venues, which have been revived - and the proximity to La Rambla and the Port Vell (old port).
The residence is situated between two metro stations, each just a few steps away. If you walk in one direction, you will find Poble Sec station on line 3 (the green line), while in the other lies Paral·lel, served by lines 2 (the purple line) and 3. There are also numerous bicing (Barcelona bike share) stations and bus stops around the residence. Plus, Plaza España is only 15 minutes' walk away. Here you can hop on metro line 1 (the red line) and the ferrocarrils (local railways with services to places like Montserrat). Melon District Poble Sec is a great option for people looking for a central, well-connected area to call home.
