Would you like to live in Pedralbes?

The place name Petras Albas or ‘white stones’, documented in 986, refers to the light colour of the rock in this area and was adopted by the farmhouse that presided over it, from which the name of the current neighbourhood derives. Queen Elisenda de Montcada, fourth wife of Jaime II, chose the place to found, in 1327, a monastery of Poor Clares, the current Monastery of Pedralbes, which is considered one of the jewels of Catalan Gothic. Other places of historical interest are the Can Canet farmhouse, Santa Caterina and the Font del Lleó, Santa Maria Reina and the Vil·la Hèlius.
Pedralbes is, today, the highest-level residential area in Barcelona, ​​with large mansions —old and new— surrounded by gardens, such as around Pearson Avenue and Oreneta Park, or isolated blocks, such as in the immediate vicinity from the Pedralbes avenue and the Esplugues road. The neighbourhood includes, at its western end, the whole or small neighbourhood of La Mercè, created in 1946 with the name of Las Cinco Rosas, referring to one of the symbols of the Falange. The National Housing Institute built 123 protected homes there which, in 1981, became part of the urban social heritage.
The neighbourhood includes the great Cervantes park, the Bruc barracks and the gardens and the Royal Palace of Pedralbes, as well as the North Campus of the University Zone. Gaudí’s Güell estate also stands out, with the well-known dragon on the forged entrance. At the eastern end, between Avinguda de Pedralbes and Ronda del Mig, is the Font dels Ocellets-Santa Gemma residential area.
