The location of the Cemetery of Forgotten books is somewhere along the Calle Arco del Teatro, near the Rambla.
It was also on this square that the bookseller Barceló and his niece were renting an appartment (book Shadow of the Wind, Zafon).
The church was said to be Gaudi's favourite. The story is that Gaudi was run-over and killed on his way to this church.
The tiny streets of this neighbourhood represent very well the dark and grim atmosphere of the book.
In reality the famous Cine Femina got destroyed by a tragic fire.
It is also in this restaurant that Daniel (book The Shadow of the Winds) meets the bookseller Gustavo Barcelo. It was also the place where his father met his mother in 1932.
This was the street where Teresita Boadas was sewing aprons in the Santamaria textile factory. She was once the girlfriend and financee of Isaac, the gard of the Cemetry of Lost books, but she died of tuberculosis (book Shadow of the Wind, Zafon).
It's a spot where Daniel had lunch with this father.
This was also the setting where a Gypsy woman read the fortune of Isaac and his grilfriend, saying that they always would be together. Isaac's girlfried died a few months later of TBC.
The beach of Barceona is at the border of the burrough.
This burrough was picked by Carlos Ruiz Zafon to end his story of the famous book The Shadow of the Winds.
