The streets of the Barceloneta in Ciutat Vella district are arranged like corridors running parallel and perpendicular to the Port de Barcelona, and draw us into a world of modest buildings, with balconies displaying clothes hanging out to dry and small ground-floor restaurants and tapas bars, filled with chatter and noise, and permeated by the constant smell of the sea.
The old harbour, Barcelona's Port Vell, which stretches from the Columbus Monument to the Barceloneta, offers endless possibilities to enjoy your leisure time, such as L'Aquàrium or Maremàgnum, amongst others. Following a long historic process, the Port Vell, with its landmark buildings and monuments, now gleams like one of the most valuable pearls on the Mediterranean coast.
As you explore the narrow streets of the old Barceloneta neighbourhood in Ciutat Vella, you'll discover the charm and atmosphere of a working-class district, which attracts many tourists to its beaches, fine restaurants and bars.
Nowhere else in Barcelona better encapsulates post-modernity than Diagonal Mar and the Forum in the Sant Martí district. Set out along the final stretch of the Avinguda Diagonal, this neighbourhood originated from the major redevelopment of the industrial district of Poblenou and merges, in its final section, with the Forum.
One of Barcelona's most recently expanded neighbourhoods and a benchmark for modernity.
