Located in Barceloneta one of the city centre's most charming and authentic 'barrios'. The area was built in the late 1800s as Barcelona's fishing port and was the first area to be built outside the medieval city walls.
Although the fishing port and boats are now hidden by piazzas, yachts and sand, the area still boasts many great (Barcelona's best) seafood restaurants and tapas bars - especially alongside the marina front.
Barceloneta is full of Spanish and Catalan charm and idiosyncrasies, washing drapes over the balconies and old ladies chat from their windows to their neighbours across the street.
Barceloneta is very much part of the old city centre 'Ciutat Vella' and is nestled between the beach and El Born, the most upmarket old city centre district which is a 10 minute walk away for many classy restaurants and bars.
Walking to the Ramblas is a 15 minute stroll across the harbour front - or take the cable car. The medieval city is also a 10- 15 minute walk.
Other Activities: Just about everything as you are both by the beach and in the city centre
