The Satalia

Crossing the entire neighborhood of Poble-Sec, on Carrer de Radas we find this small neighborhood, the Satalia. Sunk between the Paseo de la Exposición and the Montaña de Montjuic, this small neighborhood still survives that reminds us of the past of Montjuic linked to the quarries; Between the gardens, castles, theaters and museums La Satalia, it still retains its rural charm.

Its name comes from a rose hips, a white flower that grew on that side of the mountain. In the neighborhood, the name comes as a finger ring, as part of its humble beauty, it is one of the few neighborhoods that maintains direct contact with nature. Your single-family homes have a garden or vegetable garden. Julià Street is its main axis that allows us to corner other alleyways.

It does not cost to travel the neighborhood since there are very few streets that form it. From the passages that end up in the mountain you can enjoy magnificent views of the city. The most beautiful houses are found in the last sections of the Blasco de Garay and Margarit streets: villas built at the beginning of the 20th century.

The Satalia, has something unusual, the passage “Old of Valencia”, a sidewalk between walls of stone that is located on an ancient Roman road.

A large part of the neighborhood is occupied by a football field of the same name. You will notice that the stands seem dug in the mountain, and it is that here was the old quarry that gives name to the neighborhood and from where raw material was extracted to build mill wheels.
