La Barceloneta is a district on the coast known for its sandy beaches. It used to be a part where fishermen spend their days, but since the second half of the 20th century, Barceloneta is best known for the beach which is one of Barcelona’s best-loved beaches. However, the area is not only about the sand and sun, the residential area is also worth visiting. Traditionally a working-class area, La Barceloneta gives you the real insight of the way of life of the majority of Barcelona’s citizens. Hundreds of tapas bars and cafes all across the district invite the tourists to feel the charm of Barceloneta and see Barcelona from another angle.
The metro station Barceloneta serves the whole neighbourhood.
The prices in restaurants and bars are much lower than in other parts of Barcelona, while, at the same time, the service is on the same, or even higher level.
