Smell the salty sea air in this neighbourhood.

Barceloneta is the place for fishermen, and is a slice of tranquillity amid the hustle and bustle of the big city. It is surprising how this little neighbourhood remains an oasis of peace, surrounded by a metropolis. This area became inhabited in the 18th century by fishermen, in order to be close to the port. It still retains a large amount of its original buildings, which, despite the worn saltpetre, tell the history of Barceloneta. Today, it is an interesting combination of fishing village and a port, which sees the arrival of some of the most luxurious boats in the city. Its roads also boast some of the most luxurious and prestigious restaurants in the area and, beside all of it, is the Barceloneta Beach. This is the most popular beach in Barcelona, with a lively atmosphere both by day and by night, when crowds fill the food and drink stands along the beach.
