Barceloneta Beach 2 We spent a wonderful month in Barceloneta here. This location is fantastic! It is in a Spanish neighborhood with all the activity of daily life. We felt like we were at the hub of a wheel with all the sights at our fingertips...the beach, the marina, El Born, La Ribera, Port Vell, and Metro all 5 minutes away. It is an easy walk of 15 minutes or less to La Rambla, the Gothic district, Parc de le Cuitadella, the Cathedral, Villa Olimpica, Ferran Street,etc. In the immediate neightborhood there are numerous restaurants,funky bars and a farmer´s market. A great place to explore Barcelona from!
