Barcelona has ten districts. Barceloneta is the smallest district and forms a triangle between the Port Vell, the old port and the Platja de Barceloneta. North of the zoo is the limit of this district. Barceloneta is an old fishermen’s neighborhood located next to the beach and port and is an only 15 minute walk to the centre. It is a typical Spanish area that has retained almost all of its original style and charm. It is definitely an up and coming neighborhood but still needs some work.
The Barceloneta beach is the closest beach to the centre of Barcelona. This area is probably one of the favorite areas for the tourist visiting Barcelona for a cultural holiday but also wanting to hang out on the beach. Barceloneta beach gained status as the best urban beach in the World and total third best beach in the World, according the documentary film "Worlds Best Beaches" produced by Discovery Channel in 2005. It is especially very popular during the summer season.READ_MORE_BTN_TEXT
