Sarrià is the neighbourhood par excellence of Barcelona. It retains the traditional taste and the personality of lifelong neighbours. A district of shops and stately mansions but also parks, health institutions and prestigious schools. To have a walk through Sarrià is always a pleasure and a reunion with the past. The Sant Gervasi district is mainly a residential area which is very well connected to the rest of Barcelona. It is very close to the traditional neighbourhood of Gracia and the well-known Eixample district. The area has many shops, cafes, bars and different restaurants.
