Barceloneta neighborhood is actually within the limits of ciutat vella district, but we wanted to separate both, because both have completely different ambiences and history.
La Barceloneta had always been outside of the old city walls surrounding ‘Ciutat Vella’.
La Barceloneta has traditionally been the Barcelona’s very own fisherman and navy neighborhood. All the buildings look very similar, and are famous for having very small apartments with diminute balconies with cloth drying racks always full of hanging clothes.
The neighborhood is surrounded by some beaches & the old port and has become one of Barcelona hotspots for visitors!
In the map above you can see hotels, apartments, b&b and hostels in this area.
And one more thing: if you visit this area, whether it’s day or nighttime, please respect the silence and the neighbours traditions, at the end tourism is about that right?
