The area is a home to many businesses, shopping malls, cinemas, restaurants, sports facilities, and the new U Arena, the largest concert hall in Europe. This lively neighborhood hosts many events all year long and boasts international works of art, including pieces by Calder, Mirò, César, Richard Serra.
