Our school is in the Sarrià neighborhood. The charming residential neighborhood of Sarrià is part of the broader, notably affluent Barcelona district of Sarrià-Sant Gervasi. This is the fabled Zona Alta, the elevated swathe of real estate that stretches from Diagonal up into the rolling Collserola Natural Park.
The Sarrià-Sant Gervasi area takes in some of the finest homes, modernist buildings, elite schools, hidden corners and shops. It is also one of the neighborhoods with most green spaces in the city. It is the perfect location in Barcelona for our school.
The Sarrià- Sant Gervasi neighborhood enjoys the benefits of space that is somewhat lacking elsewhere, and as a result there are more green spaces, international schools, up-market clinics and social and sports clubs.
Barcelona is rightfully admired for its architecture and tourist appeal, but Sarrià is proof that the city is also a world-class location to call home. With its strong identity, friendly atmosphere, and relaxed pace of life, Sarrià is a great place in a town, just 15 minutes from the buzzing heart of one of the best cities in the world.
BFIS is located in the Sarrià neighborhood and in a privileged place as far as public transportation is concerned. Very close to the school campus, there are several bus stops and the city commuter train line, that stems from the city center, connects to many of our close neighborhoods and suburbs outside of Barcelona. In addition, right next to the school are the main routes in and out of the city allowing for quick and shorter trips and avoiding peak traffic hours.
