The Silken Diagonal Barcelona stands out for its modern architecture and interior design by Barcelona architect Juli Capella, who created an inspiring game of contrasts in black and white for the façade. Inside everything is new and surprising, designed for a public that seeks exclusive accommodation, full of details with good taste and in accordance with current design trends. The best views of the city are from its pool on an Exclusive Terrace, unique in the city of Barcelona for its 360º panoramic view where you can take in Montjuic, Tibidabo, the Port and the Diagonal from start to finish.
