While the southeastern area is not a district in and of itself, we are using the definition to group together two distinct districts. They are Quatre Carreres (directly below the Eixample) and Camins al Grau (the district just west of the maritime neighbourhoods).
These areas are mostly residential, but you might find yourself wandering around them because of the important landmarks that are found here.
This state-of-the-art complex houses a science museum, an IMAX theatre, a performing arts centre, and the largest aquarium in Europe. Immediately around Ciudad de Artes, are the more affluent residential areas, characterised by modern, large buildings with high windows.
Because of the area’s distance from the city centre, we recommend you take public transport or bike rather than walk. The two districts are well connected, with metro lines 5 and 7 passing through Camins al Grau, and tram line 10 passing through Quatre Carreres.
The most important sights and attractions in this area are:
- Ciudad de las Artes y las Ciencias
- Palacio de las Artes Reina Sofía
- Museo de las Ciencias Príncipe Felipe
- Pont de l’Assut de l’Or
- Museu Faller
