  • Something like the Mikrolimano a thing, with cafes, clubs and restaurants. Many boats from the one and many people on the other.

  • Modern district, built for the Olympic Games in 1992. It is characterized by the presence of two towering skyscrapers, trendy eateries and a beautiful Pier. Ideal for a walk.

  • Had it's own draw I guess, we ended up just doing the bus tour. Had some neat architecture and quite a few restaurants in the area. Good if you don't have anything else to do for the day.
  • Hot .The weather is very hot but the fish design as very nice. It is all shaped after the 1992 Olympics. The beach life is busy and very much flourishing .It is absolutely amazing with everyone doing activities or just enjoying the weather
  • Nice port but the bars were much better in the past. T0Now they are all the same, just different names and different music like a big disco with different areas....
  • I have been here many times on my office work. Out side of the port much better than Inside the port. One thing is good in the port that they have 24*7 wifi
  • Clubs bars and food. Everything here for the night out. Awesome for the hardcore partier, was here 2 nights in a row till 6am.

Where to stay in Barcelona

Because the city's metro system makes traveling from area to area relatively painless, you have more flexibility in choosing a place to stay. Barceloneta, the neighborhood surrounding the city beach is somewhat removed from the city center, making its hotels popular with families. Only a 15-minute walk from the center, Barceloneta has a more laid-back beach atmosphere but still offers several restaurants and entertainment options. Farther away from the beach and closer to the city center, El Born is a charming neighborhood well-known for its restaurants and lively bar scene. Eixample is also popular as it is more central and home to some of the city's best shopping and tourist sites, including La Sagrada Familia. For a more traditional experience, consider staying in the Gothic Quarter, the heart of Old Barcelona. This picturesque neighborhood boasts a tight network of historical architecture with boutique hotels and traditional restaurants.
