Rooms are available to rent in this 3-bedroom apartment shared with the live-in landlord on Carrer de Fluvià in Sant Martí. The 75 m² apartment has 1 bathroom and a full kitchen to be shared among all occupants. The decor is bright, cheerful and welcoming, and the property is well furnished.
This part of Barcelona is much more open than more central areas of the city, with wide avenues making it feel bright, and more relaxed. The area is well supplied with amenities too; a 4-minute walk will take you to the nearest metro station, and the apartment is only 150 m from Gran Via de les Corts Catalanes, one of the most important avenues in Barcelona. There are several supermarkets within a few minute's walk, and banks and other shops around too.

Sant Martí is a varied district.
Urban and residential centres in the north. Sprawling beaches in the south. This place wrote the book on having the best of both worlds.
So will you have a fast-paced city kind of day or a relaxing, sand-sea-and-sun kind of day?
In Sant Martí, the choice is yours.
What can I do here?
Check out the colourful Barcelonian emblem that is Torre Agbar.
It's a 144-metre skyscraper, a finger pointing to the stars. On Friday, Saturday and Sundays evenings, 4,500 LEDs transform it into a luminous fountain of colour. Awesome.
Hunt for bargains at the Mercat dels Encants. It's a busy flea market that takes place under a reflective mirrored canopy. Think Terminator 2 (T-1000).
Head to the beaches to swim and sunbathe. The sand is golden, the trinket sellers many, the sun a blessing.
When thirst attacks, head to Kalinda chiringuito. It's a bar on the beach. They have raised decking facing the sea. Idyllic.
Go to Plaça de Prim. It's home to fish restaurant Els Pescadors. One of those places you go to for simple, fresh food that tastes fine. (It's a little expensive, though.)
Order a delicious, fresh fideuà. It's like paella, but with seafood and noodles instead of rabbit and rice. Enjoy.
Torre Agbar was designed by architect Jean Nouvel. And Jean took his inspiration from Gaudí's Sagrada Familia and the never-built Hotel Attraction. Inspired.
