Barcelona's business district.

Welcome to Les Courts

Les Corts is one of the bigger neighborhoods in Barcelona. Despite its great size, this area doesn't hold so many attractions or famous landmarks, giving it an authentic and non-touristic atmosphere. Les Corts has become one of the most important financial and business districts in Barcelona. People looking for a quiet, peaceful and secure lifestyle will feel at home in this neighborhood. 

Les Corts began to take its form in 1897 and was part of two former municipalities - Les Corts de Sarria and Sarria, today known as 'Sarria -Sant Gervasi' neighborhood. Les Corts was a town independent from Barcelona, but when a new plans to expand Barcelona were developed, Les Corts became a neighborhood of the Catalan capital. Today, apartment buildings and glass-covered office buildings have consumed almost every bit of this old towns landscape, leaving little trace of the traditional architecture that used to be present. Nevertheless, you can catch glimpses of this neighborhood's traditional past in 'Plaza De La Concòrdia' located behind L'illa shopping mall. There you will find La Església Maria de Déu del Remei - a beautiful parish with its signature 40 meter high bell tower.

Today, Les Corts is renowned as Barcelona's business neighborhood. Here, the Spanish big-bank, La Caixa, has its headquarters and is where other big and small businesses reside. Given this, Les Courts has several hotels and restaurants to accommodate International business commuters.
