Barceloneta district Barcelona

Barceloneta is located in a very unique area of Barceloneta. From above, it is a triangular district shaped by the Mediterranean Sea, Port Vell and El Born neighborhood. 


Barceloneta used to be the quarter for fishermen. Streets in Barceloneta are parallel and narrow as a consequence of military grid construction in the past to provide accommodation for former residents of a neighborhood that have lost their places for the city citadel. Nowadays, it becomes an alluring neighborhood for not only tourists but also locals with sandy beaches, glass towers, rugged old fishermen houses in contract and more. It is the district of nostalgia and promising future.
