This is another nice place to take a walk, or sit down to eat something. You can find yourself spending a good hour in this tranquil setting. It is cared for and maintained quite well. I suggest you visit it once you are in the Barceloneta.

Definitely worth spending time walking around the Port area of Barcelona. See the cruise ships at dock as well as rich men's toys (i.e. large motor yachts). There is a very large shopping centre which has a lot of eateries. Also a lot of buildings in the vicinity that are worth photographing

This is a nice port in Barceloneta and is romantic to watch the sun set here. Plenty of places to sit and several restaurants are in the area as well.

The night is still young after an early dinner and sunset in Barcelona was very late in June, so we've decided to have a walk at the port. It was absolutely amazing and we were so thankful to have chosen to walk around the area. The view is stunning!

It is a pretty place to visit if you like to see boats and yachts parked on the waterfront. There are many restaurants and bars in the area. Also the night life here is so full of life as there are many clubs also at the other end. For me, it was just so much fun to hang around the... More

We waited in line for over an hour in the heat (umbrellas and mist fans were provided for cooling) and paid 33 euros (and were shortchanged a euro by the cashier) for what amounted to less than a 10 minute ride to what turned out to be not even the top of Montjuic. To get to the top and the... More

Staying in Barrio Gotico (Barri Gotic)

Neighborhood Profile
Barrio Gotico (Barri Gotic)
With its iconic, old-Europe streets and alleys, this picturesque neighborhood is the very heart of Barcelona. It blends historic artifacts from its days under Roman dominion up through the Spanish Civil War with a vibrant modern-day culture of artisan shops and authentic culinary experiences. Avid explorers will be thrilled to discover quaint terraces and plazas brought to life by the many small bars and local musicians lasting late into the night. Fashionistas will be drawn to Portal de L’Angel, which is lined with well-known brand names and smaller boutique stands.
