10 charming stores in Sarrià
To live in a rental apartment in BeCorp · Barcelona – Sarrià is to meet the lifestyle of a town. The neighborhood of Sarrià still retains the spirit that excited the nineteenth-century Catalan bourgeoisie: small streets and squares that are built around Major Street, narrow sidewalks, pedestrian streets and neighbors who greet as they pass.
Sarrià, due to the influence of the middle-class and bourgeois who installed the summer houses, was one of the most prosperous areas of Barcelona. A splendor that manifests itself in the architectural field, with houses, many of them modernist, that can be seen in the old town, in the Mallofré passage or in the Sant Vicenç square.
The beauty of Sarrià is enjoyed in every store or restaurant in the neighborhood. Do you want to meet the ten most charming? Take note!
