Majestic mansions in Barcelona

The concept of ‘luxury’ and mansions in Barcelona began to develop in the Catalan capital with the arrival of democracy. In previous times, and as a consequence of the dictatorship that dominated the country, the scenario in Barcelona was very different. But with the political transformation of the country and its recovery after 36 years of dictatorship, new urban projects began to develop the city. 

And they did so to the point of organising the 1992 Olympic Games, transforming the city: it was time to build mansions in Barcelona. Abandoned factories were replaced by an Olympic Village with new residences, and luxury houses in Barcelona began to appear.  Barceloneta beach was extended, opening up a huge stretch of renewed coastline to residents and tourists. The Olympic Port was created to boost the level of tourism, new roads were built and Barcelona began to offer a more international profile.

At the same time, Barcelona’s world of culture and gastronomy also progressed exponentially. Today, Barcelona is a city that offers a highly sought-after lifestyle. This is evident from the majestic homes offered by Amat Luxury, a luxury real estate agency in Barcelona. Let’s take a look at some of their proposals.
