Neighborhood · Hidden Gem · Other
To hit up the beaches that help make the city so beloved, head to La Barceloneta. Dip into the Mediterranean at this stretch of sand, which earned mention the second book of Don Quixote. Traditionally the fisherman’s quarter, the neighborhood still serves up fresh seafood in its abundant restaurants. Stroll along the boardwalk, watch the surfers, or stop for a glass of wine at one of the many beachside bars. Make sure you also check out two landmarks: Rebecca Horn's "Homenatge a la Barceloneta" monument and Frank Gehry's "Peix d'Or" sculpture.
