Hundreds of years ago, Poble Sec was an orchard outside the city walls. Then, in the 1920s, it became a theater district, known for its cabarets and nightlife. Now, Poble Sec is a place where the old Barcelona meets new, where immigrants settle and locals eat inexpensive tapas on Thursday nights, where Catalan singer Joan Manuel Serrat got his start and new artists are making their names today.
