    Once a downtrodden corner of downtown Barcelona, this
    gritty area has seen a cultural resurgence boasting an
    excellent nightlife and one of the most multi ethnic

    To get a taxi should be no problem. We took the airport buss and then metro late evening which worked fine. Request the taxi driver to use the taxameter then you are sure not get overcharged. Have a great trip.

    I booked a private taxi online. Because the taxi at the airport may not return your change if you have a big note cash.
