200 years of lively enterprise and still going strong

Set just south of Catalonia's capital city, Barcelona, L'Hospitalet de Llobregat (often known simply as L'Hospitalet) is one of the most densely populated urban areas in Europe. The roots of its population boom reach all the way back to the 19th century, when textile factories made it a source of industrial ingenuity and success. In recent years, stays at L'Hospitalet vacation rentals continue to reflect the city's energetic past, thanks to a slew of eye-catching skyscrapers, an excellent public transportation system, and a charming collection of public squares and parks lined with bustling shops and cafes.

Sports, shopping, sightseeing? Just pick your district

L'Hospitalet de Llobregat is divided into 6 districts, each with its own character. The oldest quarter is District 1, where you'll find the History Museum, the City Council, and commercial and cultural centers. The La Florida neighborhood in District IV is a center of shopping and nightlife, where residents getting off work and vacationers looking for authentic cuisine hang out over plates of tapas. District V is home to the city's huge sports complex. Whatever ‘hood you end up in, public parks provide friendly scenery for walks and picnics.

Museums, churches, and a little old thing called Barcelona

The most obvious attraction in the vicinity of your L'Hospitalet de Llobregat vacation rental is the city to the north: Barcelona. Montjuic Castle, for example, a 17th-century fortress offering stunning views of Barcelona and the sea below, is only 4 miles from L'Hospitalet's city center. Still, this suburb has its own cultural landmarks. The History Museum of L'Hospitalet has exhibits on everything from local history to Renaissance art. The Santa Eulalia de Merida church is another emblem of the city's dramatic past—it was built on the remains of an old gothic church.

Year-round humidity keeps temps in check

Set on the Mediterranean, L'Hospitalet de Llobregat is influenced by a mild marine climate. The weather is particularly steamy in summer, when high temperatures hit the 80s and the air is humid. Rainfall is frequent but rarely torrential in spring and autumn. In winter, temperatures hang around the 50s and get downright chilly at night. You'll need to bundle up, but you won't freeze your tail off. The lowest lows are in the 40s, and snow falls on L'Hospitalet de Llobregat vacation rentals only every few years.

A soaring eagle catches lunch as it snatches your cares away

This modern industrial city is closer to nature than you'd expect. Visitors often take day trips from their L'Hospitalet de Llobregat vacation rentals to Sitges or other points south to relax on sun-drenched beaches. Even closer is Parc de Collserola, the largest metropolitan park in the world. A collection of pine forests, scrublands, and savannahs, it's where residents retreat when they need a break from the rat race. In fact, you might spot a rat-catching eagle soaring the skies. Cuter animals on display include badgers, rabbits, and woodpeckers, plus lizards, giant turtles, and the small spotted toad.
