La Barceloneta, Barcelona

(4.2/5 based on 1,500+ reviews on the web)
To hit up the beaches that help make the city so beloved, head to La Barceloneta. Dip into the Mediterranean at this stretch of sand, which earned mention the second book of Don Quixote. Traditionally the fisherman’s quarter, the neighborhood still serves up fresh seafood in its abundant restaurants. Stroll along the boardwalk, watch the surfers, or stop for a glass of wine at one of the many beachside bars. Make sure you also check out two landmarks: Rebecca Horn's "Homenatge a la Barceloneta" monument and Frank Gehry's "Peix d'Or" sculpture. Arrange your visit to La Barceloneta and discover more family-friendly attractions in Barcelona using our Barcelona trip builder.

  • A great 'promenade' along the marina, an excellent way to catch the sights of the sea and people watch to your heart's content! Buzzing, yet relaxed.  more »
