Ex-Bayern star Robert Lewandowski has arrived at FC Barcelona, but does not live directly in the Catalan metropolis with his family.
Munich/Castelldefels/Barcelona - The Ciutat Vella, the old town of Barcelona, is characterized by an impressive Gothic architecture.
The El Born neighborhood, right in the center, is particularly lively -- and popular with those looking for expensive downtown real estate.
Many stars such as pop singer Shakira, singer-songwriter Joan Manuel Serrat or ex-soccer star David Villa also live in the exclusive Pedralbes district, a green outskirts of the Catalan metropolis.

After arriving at FC Barcelona with his wife Anna Lewandowska and their two little daughters Klara and Laura, Robert Lewandowski, on the other hand, moved out of the big city, which with around 1.63 million inhabitants can sometimes be a bit hectic.
“So far everything is going like in a movie.
I didn't believe that something like this could happen in my life," ex-Bayern striker Lewandowski told
at his presentation at the Camp Nou .
The coastal town of Castelldefels, where the Lewandowskis will live in the posh Herzogpark in Munich (and near the Isar) after years, would also offer a perfect film backdrop.

"When Robbie was in the USA with Barcelona, I started looking for a house, a school for the children, but also restaurants with good, healthy food," Ms. Anna told
: "Robbie's dream has come true gone, the whole family is excited.”
So that everyone can relax a bit from the excitement, things are idyllic in Castelldefels.
Here, 20 kilometers south-west of Barcelona, there are almost no tourists, although the town with around 67,000 inhabitants is located directly on the Mediterranean coast and has a very wide sandy beach.

Robert Lewandowski's place of residence: Ex-Bayern star moves with his family directly to the Mediterranean coast
Residence of Robert Lewandowski:
around 20 kilometers southwest of Barcelona directly on the Mediterranean Sea
Stars and high earners live here in properties that are sometimes worth millions;
very few tourists
This is ideal for morning or evening sports because it is not overcrowded at all.
An argument for fitness influencer Anna (around 4.3 million followers)?
Instead of tourists, high earners live here in apartments and houses, which, separated from each other by pine forests, mostly offer an excellent view of the Mediterranean Sea.
Real estate worth millions is mainly in the prestigious suburb of Bellamar, which, a little off the beaten track, has its own motorway connection in the direction of Camp Nou - the FC Barcelona stadium.
Quiet coastal town for high earners: Castelldefels on the Costa del Garraf, around 20 kilometers southwest of Barcelona.

Robert Lewandowski: Barcelona instead of Munich, Castelldefels instead of Herzogpark in Bogenhausen
Lionel Messi used to live in Bellamar in Castelldefels.
In the interview, they did not reveal whether the Lewandowskis ended up here.
What is known, however, is that Robert and Anna brought a large part of the family and several friends to Catalonia.
They were all present at the launch at Barca Stadium - mother Iwona even had the front row on the pitch.
They should probably help you get used to your new place of residence, which has an additional incentive.
The Lewandowskis are big Balearic fans, the 33-year-old Polish super striker and his equally old wife have a holiday home in Santa Ponca on Mallorca.
And it really isn't that far from Castelldefels on the Catalan coast.
Just like in the movie.
