The Barceloneta beach is one of Barcelona‘s most emblematic places. It is not only one of the oldest and most famous places of the city, but also is one of the favorite beaches of Barcelona. It is located in the district of Ciutat Vella in Barcelona.
The origin of the Barceloneta district dates back to the eighteenth century, where fishermen, were living with different trades related to the sea and also with the metal industry.
The Barceloneta district has a triangular shape and is bordered by the various beaches in the area and the Mediterranean Sea. It is bordered by the Port Vell, the district of La Ribera (near the France station) and the new Olympic Port. In the center of this triangle, we can find the Church of Sant Miquel del Port in Plaza de la Barceloneta, the key attraction of the neighborhood.
La Barceloneta became famous due to the celebration of the Olympic Games of 1992, held in Barcelona.
