Welcome to Sarrià-Sant Gervasi

The second largest neighborhood in our beloved Barcelona is Sarrià-Sant Gervasi - a quiet paradise in the north-west of the city, bordering with Gracia.

Sarria-Sant Gervasi is renowned as the most expensive neighborhood in Barcelona, and you get what you pay for - the area is filled with green parks, shopping areas, interesting sights, and narrow and quiet streets. This neighborhood has a distinct small-town feeling, making it very special. The greatest aspect of this neighborhood is it's location further from the most touristic parts of the city. What does this mean? A good nights sleep, and total tranquillity .

The earliest information on Sarrià-Sant Gervasi was contained in a document written in 987, describing the neighborhood's origin as a Roman colony. The neighbourhood itself was orginally part of various smaller towns which eventually formed the larger town of Sarrià, which was then integrated into Barcelona in 1921.

Market Explained

The market in Sant Gervasi is pretty much always hot. Since it's the upscale neighborhood in the city, there is always more demand than supply. It's broken up into sub areas of which Galvany is the most accessible price wise and most lively, Bonanova is more residential, Tres Torres is more upscale and residential, and then Sarria which is also very residential and quaint as it was once a small village.

Rental and sales prices are amongst the highest in the city but deals can always be found. If you're looking for a more upscale environment or want to be in a great place for your family then Sant Gervasi / Sarria is just the place for you.
