Terraza Dos Cielos


The arrival of the new village

In the old days this neighbourhood was a swampy and humid area known as the herbes de Levant (Herbs of Levant), where shepherds would take their livestock to graze. In time, however, the peasants began to clean up the area and built their farms around the medieval parish of Sant Martí de Provençals. Although at first this neighbourhood was called Taulat (sowing terrace), those who settled here around 1800 rechristened it as Poblenou, literally, “New Town” or Pueblo Nuevo.

Places of Interest

The metro entrance is a minute away from Poblenou’s Rambla (main boulevard), which since its origins is the neighbourhood’s main axis, first as a residential area chosen by the bourgeoisie and now occupied by many and very diverse businesses. On account of the 1992 Olympics the last stretch of the Rambla was extended all the way to the sea.
Very close by, in the square de la Unió, you will find the recently remodeled Poblenou market or of the Unió, and on the carrer del Joncar, 27-45, Can Saladrigas, one of the first textile mills in the area (1860), where today is Poblenou’s library—Manule Arranz—and an imaging centre that furthermore commemorates Poblenou’s industry, which is a good example of the neighbourhood’s awareness of the industrial historic heritage which has taken root with greater strength than ever before.
