“Lovely area for a stroll and nice food”
Reviewed October 13, 2013

The Little Barcelona area is a nice neighborhood off the La Rambla and the old city. It is a nice place for a stroll and also for photographic moments as it is near the sea cooast. There are many options for food and drink in this area as well. Very enjoyable.

“Loads of things to do”
Reviewed August 25, 2013

I wish we had more time to devote to this location. It is packed with restaurants, shops, people, places to visit and is in the open air so great for outdoor lovers

“Nice walk, great view”
Reviewed June 1, 2013

It's a nice walk along here to get back to the Las Rambalas. Very vibrant but full of tourists! There are some great restaurants, where you can eat outside and see the cable car ride.

“Little Barcelona”
Reviewed April 6, 2013 via mobile

Little Barcelona??. You should consider to change this description cause no one in Barcelona knows what little Barcelona is. Barceloneta was built after invader troops of Spanish Crown Felipe V helped by French troops ordered to destroy the Old Ribera neighbourhood to build up a new Citadelle (fortress) the unique fortress built in Europe not to defend a city from invaders but to submit population and Barcelona citizens under control with a permanent number of soldiers after Barcelona surrenders on September 11, 1714. This was a requirement of conquerors military engineers as they wanted direct visibility from citadelle and Barcelona to point the city with their batteries in case they have to open fire against Barcelona rebels.
