I get the impression that the Paseo San Juan area (Passeig de Sant Joan in Catalan) is not really on the radar for foreigners looking to buy property in Barcelona. I might be wrong.
It should be. I think it’s one of the best areas in the city. Great housing stock, very central, easy access to the Parc de la Ciutadella and beach. And Paseo San Juan itself is wide and beautiful with lots of kids parks and other things to do.
When the Eixample was first conceived, Paseo de Gracia and Paseo de San Juan were supposed to be equally grand, but so far Paseo de Gracia has been more exclusive. But as a places to live I’d rather live on San Juan. I also think it’s got good investment potential. Anyone agree / disagree?
I also agree, Mark. When I was looking to buy, it was one of my preferred areas. And as MoltMaca said, the improvements near Plaza Tetuan are beautiful. Just below Plaza Tetuan, there is a Chinese bank for businesses and real estate.
