What you'll do

Have you ever tried time travel? That is what we will be doing while exploring the narrow and charming streets of Barceloneta’s old-fashioned fishing neighborhood, famous for its balconies displaying clothes hung out to dry in the sun, and the smell of the sea. Starting seven centuries ago, when today’s Barceloneta was still all water, we will be uncovering the traces of the district’s fascinating history, picturing ourselves as the fishermen who settled in the original baroque quarter built by the military, and imagining how their lives and the whole neighborhood changed with the setting up of naval and metal industries. We will discover all kind of hidden stories, meet one of Barceloneta’s most renowned residents, and walk along the coast while having bread with chocolate, the original snack that small beach bars offered to the first swimmers back in the twentieth century. If you want to immerse yourself in the unique history and culture of Barcelona, come enjoy a fun experience in one of the most appealing neighborhoods in the city! You will benefit from a special launch offer and you'll be able to get a bunch of useful local recommendations to make the most of your stay :)
