Property features include: high ceilings, French balconies (typical of the Eixample), parquet floors, heating, and air conditioning.
The area is excellent, in the district of Eixample Dreta, a few steps from the Arc de Triomf, the Borne and the whole historical city centre, and at short walking distance from Plaza Catalunya, Paseo de Gracia, and the sea, it is the best location to enjoy the city centre with all its landmarks and amenities.
No new tourist licenses are issued in Barcelona, so finding a flat that already owns one is the only way to be able to rent the flat out to tourists.
FORT PIENC: A VERY INTERESTING RESIDENTIAL AREA IN THE EIXAMPLE
Fort Pienc owes its name from a former military fortification that disappeared in the 19th Century called Fort Pius (Pienc is the Catalan for the Spanish Pio).
It is now a residential area with the youngest population of the Eixample quarters. The area goes from Paseo Sant Joan to the Plaza de Las Glories.
Although not very well known, Fort Pienc is an interesting area, which includes some of the most important cultural centres of the city.
The National Theatre of Catalunya and the Auditori de Barcelona are located here.
The Plaza de Toros Monumental is another landmark of the area. Opened in 1914, it is the the last place where bull fighters took place in Catalunya before being abolished on popular demand in 2010. It is now used for concerts and theatre shows.
Also very interesting in Fort Pienc is the area of Glories, which is undergoing complete renovation and is changing dramatically.
Fort Pienc also features the Estacio del Nord, the most important bus station of Catalunya for number of passengers and national and international connections.
Having developed into a residential area, Fort Pienc offers plenty of shops, supermarkets, services such as pharmacies, schools, gyms, medical centres, etc.
The area border with Eixample Dreta and with the magnificent Ciutadela Park.
Transport links are very good, with several underground stops in the area and many buses.
