HORTA – GUINARDÓ
The district of Horta-Guinardó is the third most extensive in Barcelona preceded by Sants-Montjüic and Sarriá-Sant Gervasi. It comprises most of the areas from which it gets its name, the old township of Sant Joan d’Horta, part of Sant Martí de Provensals and Sant Andreu del Palomar.
The basic territorial units it’s composed of are: El Guinardó, Baix Guinardó, Can Baró, Font d’en Fargas, El Carmelo, La Teixonera, la Clota, Horta, Vall d´Hebron, Montbau y Sant Genís dels Agudells. Its plans for urban development have been heavily influenced by the heterogeneous topography of the lands it came to occupy. Such entities as the mountain hills of Collserola, the Hebron valley and the Horta riverside have led to an urban layout extremely diverse in each of its sectors. Therefore, the district is a patchwork of urban areas rather dissimilar the one to the other that roughly correspond to the different geo-physical units it is constructed on.
Within its perimeter is part of the Collserola Park, the Labyrinth Park and quite a few prominent sports complexes such as the Horta Velodrome.
