The building is located in a quiet, residential area in upper Barcelona. A direct, fully accessible train connection is in front of the building and will take you within 15 minutes to Las Ramblas and Plaza Cataluña. Bars, restaurants and supermarket are located within a stones throw.
One visitor to Barcelona described it as "the most accessible city in Spain we have visited and we plan to return again and again as it was a pleasure to be in a place so full of historical buildings and yet so much energetic innovation going on." Most of the pavements are ramped, even in the old Barri Gotic. There are plenty accessible buses with a ramp that comes down easily to floor level allowing for easy access. Most of the bars and cafes have a small step or a ramp and the new waterfront area with the Rambla del Mar is accessible as is much of the Eixample district above Placa Catalunya.
