Independencia Street View It is the antique center of Barcelona with incredible buys and places to discover. The neighborhood is a middle-class Catalan neighborhood with many amenities.

On the tree-lined street, there are two green grocers, a bread/pastry shop, a halal butcher, a newsstand, a beauty salon, and a barber. An excellent restaurant (Refugio) is about a ten-minute walk.
