Show light - BARNES Agency, luxury real estate in Barcelona

Barcelona is considered one of the best cities to live in, due to its charm, its cultural and work offer, climate and its neighborhoods. The ‘Condal City’ is made up of 73 neighborhoods and each one has its peculiarities: some of them are particularly suitable for those looking for exclusive environments and luxury residences.

Barcelona's most prestigious districts are in the upper part of the city. If there is one that we want to highlight for its luxurious homes, its well-known schools, and its high living standard, it is Sarrià-Sant Gervasi.

Today, on the BARNES Barcelona blog, we introduce you to one of the city's most luxurious districts and the reasons why it is one of the best places to invest in your next luxury home in Barcelona.

What is the best area in Barcelona to buy a luxury home?

The Sarrià - Sant Gervasi district is one of the best to live in Barcelona. For those who are interested in investing in a luxury apartment in Barcelona and still don't know where, its features make it a considerable opportunity.


The residential area is divided into 6 neighborhoods, each with distinctive characteristics:

  1. Sarrià

    Sarrià has a special charm because it used to be a small town before the great expansion of the city. In fact, you can still appreciate the narrow streets of the neighborhood that convey a familiar and cozy atmosphere.

    The neighborhood’s center has a main avenue with shops that have been there for generations. In contrast, there are numerous green areas and outdoor spaces surrounding the area.

     2. Sant Gervasi-Galvany

      This is probably the most urban and active neighborhood in the upper side of Barcelona. It presents a variety of sophisticated and exclusive styles in many of its residential and commercial buildings.

      In addition, a fantastic and remarkable cultural offer can be found in Sant Gervasi-Galvany. Some of the most significant cultural spaces are the CosmoCaixa Science Museum, the Casa Roviralta and the La Rotonda building.

       3. El Putxet i el Farró

        This peaceful neighborhood, situated at the foot of Mount Putxet, is surrounded by woods, and has one of the most spectacular viewpoints in Barcelona, the Jardines del Turó del Putxet.

        Its squares and narrow streets make life easy, fun, and peaceful, without forgetting that it has all the necessary services and shops.

         4. La Bonanova

          Some of the most prestigious international schools, such as the French Lyceum, and some of the most famous medical centers in the city can be found in this region. La Bonanova is the perfect location for those who want to live close to the center but enjoy the quiet of remote municipalities. Buying a luxurious home in La Bonanova is a guarantee of tranquility and well-being.

           5. Les Tres Torres

            Located to the southwest of the Sarrià-Sant Gervasi district, Les Tres Torres is considered one of the safest neighborhoods in Barcelona. The area stands out for its natural spaces, its wide streets and its high-end homes with interior patios, large balconies, and beautiful terraces.

             6. Vallvidrera i Les Planes

              Located in the heart of the Collserola mountains, Vallvidrera i Les Planes is the most secluded neighborhood of all. The area is ideal for those looking to buy a house away from the city center and be surrounded by nature. Although it’s in the middle of the mountains, it still has good communication with the railway stations.

              Anyone who decides to invest in a high-end home in the Sarrià - Sant Gervasi district will be able to enjoy one of the most attractive, luxurious, and quiet areas of the Catalan capital.
