Barcelona step by step: La Barceloneta-Port Vell

800px-Port_Vell,_Barcelona,_Spain_-_Jan_2007

This fisherman’s neighborhood is full of contrasts: old, straight, salt-stained streets give way to luxury yachts and some of the city’s finest seafood and rice restaurants (such as Vinya del Mar and Can Solé). Barceloneta beach is the most popular among young visitors, with its cosmopolitan atmosphere and its round the clock liveness. The calm waters of the Mediterranean sea, the Olympic Port, the modern Ribera and the modernist lines of the Estació de Francia are the boundaries of the area. Palau del Mar is a reminder of its period as an industrial port and the nearby prawn statue by Mariscal is an echo of the 1992 Olympic Games. Maremagnum has shops, bars and discos with sea views. Next to it we find the Imax Cinema and the Aquarium. Resisting the passage of time, the church of San Miguel del Puerto is a mere stone’s throw away. Closest metro station’s Barceloneta (L4).
