Modern apartment located on the first floor of a centennial building, within walking distance of Barceloneta beach and the famous Ramblas. The house has been recently renovated maintaining the original charm of the architecture of the time.
The apartment consists of 2 double bedrooms (one en suite) and two bathrooms (one in the suite room and the other adjacent to the second bedroom).
American kitchen fully equipped with washing machine, fridge, oven, microwave.
The house is just 2 minutes walk from the Barceloneta and the Maremagnum shopping center. The nearest metro stations are Jaume I L4 and Drassanes L3. Thanks to its central position, it is possible to reach the main tourist attractions of the city walking.
The apartment is located on Ample Street. The Ample street was formed in the middle of the 12th century, during the urbanization phase of the Mercè neighborhood. In a document of the year 1203 the monarch stipulated that the street had to be wide enough so that the stones of the quarries of Montjuïc could pass through it in their transfer to the port. It was one of the most distinguished streets of old Barcelona, where the nobles built their mansions. During the 19th century, many houses were modified by their owners, in this case known bankers of the city. Today it is still one of the main arteries of the Gothic Quarter with all kinds of services within reach, excellently communicated and a few meters from the seafront. The Gothic Quarter is one of the most emblematic and charismatic districts of the Catalan capital, with lots of museums, shops and restaurants from which to enjoy the dynamic life of the neighborhood. The many facets of the neighborhood allow us to enjoy a lot of attractions, such as religious buildings such as the Cathedral of Barcelona or the Church of Pi, commercial areas such as Portal de l'Àngel or Portaferrissa, cultural reference centers such as the Ateneu Barcelonés and places with history as the Roman Temple of Augustus, the old Main Synagogue, the Royal Palace, the Cathedral or the Plaça de Sant Jaume. In this way the Gothic Quarter becomes the neuralgic, commercial, cultural and tourist center of the city of Barcelona without ceasing to be what it has always been, the oldest and most historic district of the city of Barcelona.
