The proximity to the sea and the great cultural offer of Ciutat Vella places this district in the top favourite list of interested investors who want to buy a second home both for holiday use and to rent out.
However, the best advantage of the homes in this district is that they have preserved their original features like hydraulic tiles and original woodwork and they are located in stately buildings with modernist details. For , stability in prices is expected with an increase in the number of purchases by the national client and the lack of international buyers. This area directly competes with the pleasant Rambla and the quiet and semi-pedestrian Enric Granados.
