Experience the seaside neighborhood of La Barceloneta on this unique two hour tour. Located in the fishing district, this is one of Barcelona’s oldest and most beloved beaches. You will be guided through its narrow back streets where there is still an old village feel to the place. La Barceloneta district was designed in the 18th century and used to be a fishermen’s village. Now, the district is a main meeting point for both locals and tourists any season of the year. For its cozy streets, its distinctive architecture, numerous seafood restaurants, bars, and lively beaches surround it! The district consists of a total of four beaches.
Sant Sebastià beach is the closest to the modern W Hotel, then comes the beach of
Barceloneta, and further down you will come across the beach of
Sant Miquel, where the magical sculpture of Rebecca Horn (
L’Estel Ferit) is located. The beach of
Somorrostro is the last one in the district where there used to be a shanty town that housed 15,000 people up until the mid-20th century. This district is great to stroll around and see all the buildings that are smaller and simpler than the rest of the city; most of the balconies are covered with blue and yellow flags, yes, the Barceloneta neighborhood even has its own flag!
Discover all this and more on the Barceloneta Tour, meeting point will be at the metro stop of La Barceloneta at 10:00.
