Poblenou was the most important working class district in the 19th century and exposed brick factory chimneys are still visible there, preserved as a memento of the area’s industrial and manufacturing past. A good part of this area was redesigned in connection with the 1992 Olympic Games as a residential district for housing athletes and sportspeople. When the games ended, the accommodation went on sale to the public and it became a new district known as the Vila Olímpica. Very nearby is one of the entrances to Barcelona Zoo.
