Prices of rental properties in the area are high, largely due to the variety of services and shops, the quality and finishing of the spacious and perfectly designed apartments, and the stylish entrance halls.
It is also very normal for apartment buildings to have a doorman. Due to the fact that the density of this neighbourhood is higher than that of other areas of the district, like the neighbourhood of Les Tres Torres or Pedralbes in the district of Les Corts, it is less common for apartments to have communal areas.
The buildings do however, demonstrate the elegance and distinction of bourgeois apartments of the early twentieth century.
You can see the famous Avinguda Tibidabo in the neighbourhood of Sant Gervasi-Bonanova, a wide street full of modernist mansions and famous for its blue tram, the last one that is conserved of the many that were distributed by the Ciudad Condal at the beginning of the twentieth century.
The journey of the blue tram is purely touristy. It begins at the crossing of the Kennedy Plaza with Avinguda Tibidabo, and it ends at the Tibidabo cable car stop, which takes you up the hill, until finishing its journey at the entrance of the attraction park.
