Barcelona Bus Turístic takes you to a specially wide and gardened section of Avinguda Diagonal, where you can go for a quiet stroll and even visit one of its shopping centres. It is worth taking a look at the entrance to the Finca Miralles, with its characteristic Gaudí curves, and exploring the quiet district of Les Corts, where Barça built its Camp Nou ground in 1957.
The widest and quietest section of Avinguda Diagonal
From the Diagonal – Les Corts stop on the Blue Route of Barcelona Bus Turístic you can take a stroll to Finca Miralles, where you can see the original gate and undulating perimeter wall that Gaudí designed for the industrialist Ermenegild Miralles. In fact, at the gate you can actually meet Gaudí in the form of a life-size sculpture of the architect.
On the other side of this section of Avinguda Diagonal, which has been widened and is home to several shopping centres, is the lower part of the Les Corts district, which is home to Camp Nou, Barcelona football club’s stadium. With the exception of match days, it is a very quiet residential area where you can take a stroll off the beaten tourist track.
