Situated up in the heart of the Zona Alta area of Barcelona, Bonanova is one of the most sought after neighbourhoods in Barcelona. Spreading from Plaza Bonanova at the top of Calle Muntaner, along the lovely, leafy Passieg de Bonanova to Sarria, and down to Tres Torres, Bonanova is considered by many to be the heart of the Zona Alta.

 Bonanova is a primarily residential area and there are many excellent restaurants, bars and boutiques scattered throughout the neighborhood, with several on and around the popular Calle Mandri. The close proximity to many of the best international schools and english speaking schools of Barcelona makes Bonanova property an extremely popular area for international families looking to relocate to Barcelona.

 Bonanova apartments for sale and rent tend to be larger, and many have service quarters with a maid’s room and separate service entrance and elevator. Original features in properties in Bonanova are harder to come by, and some apartments require modernization. Due to the low-rise, spacious layout of the apartment blocks, the flats tend to benefit from excellent natural light. Most apartments also have underground parking in the same or a nearby building. 

It is still possible to find private detached houses for sale in Bonanova. These are normally modernist properties dating from the turn of the last century. Some developers have also started building state of the art luxury modern villas with gardens, car parking and private swimming pools. There are also a number of properties built in the 1960s and 1970s which require some modernization.

 There are several metro stops in the Bonanova area and there are lots of bus lines in operation. By road there are easy connections to the city ring roads and to the international airport.
