    La playa esta al comienzo del sector donde están todas las otras playas de la cuidad. Eso si los que estamos acostumbrados a playas grande y con la típica arena, se sentirán un poco desilusionados ya que se nota que son medias artificiales, pero igual tienen harta onda y muy buena infraestructura con restaurantes y bares que la hacen muy interesantes.

    Favorite part Of town.

    Barceloneta has been at the heart of the urban renewal process that transformed the city ever since the 1992 (?) Olympics. It is told as the success story by the Olympic system, a model of how the events can have a positive impact. But many in Catalonia don't tell the same story. The Spanish journalist Enric González descibed it as a Barcelona palm-treed design city (im paraphrasing) in his excellent memoir, Memorias Líquidas, that just came out.

    The neighborhood used to be the quarters for the fishermen, lots of them from the town of Hostia, Italy.

    There are a few fishermen still living in Barceloneta, and you can see them in the morning, gathering in traditional spots like La Cova Fumada.

    But the place is not what it used to be. As the area has gentrified, the community has struggled to keep up with the rising prices.

    Nowadays, Barceloneta is mainly known of the beach, and its chiringuitos, a magnet for tourism. The ocean walk that begins in the W Hotel, stretches continuously upon miles of beaches. Great for jogging!

    This is a residential neighborhood of BCN, but many flock to the beach and boardwalk set in the area.
