As the sun began to set on our last day in Barcelona it was time to visit a much sought after part of the city: the beach at sunset. The big city beach in Barcelona is located in a part of town called La Barceloneta. The neighborhood is bordered by the Mediterranean Sea, the Moll d'Espanya of Port Vell, and the El Born neighborhood and even has its own flag. We were in for a last treat and I hope you will enjoy these final images from our Barcelona Travel Series.
This is only a part of a 5-part travel series to Barcelona:
Part 1: Sagrada Familia
Part 2: La Rambla, Old Town and Park Guell
Part 3: Montjuic Castle and Port Olimpic
Part 4: Casa Mila, Casa Batllo and Park Ciutadella
Part 5: Sunset on Barceloneta Beach
Barcelona Estació de França StationBefore we arrived at the beach we walked from the Park Cituadella which I have shown you in the previous part. This walk took us along the Barcelona Train Station named Estació de França. It is the second busiest railway station of the city after Barcelona-Sants in terms of regional and long-distance ridership. I entered it because its architecture caught my attention.
Lunch in the PortWe had a great lunch in a Italian restaurant called "La Tagliatella". Some of us had pizzas, other pasta dishes and risotto. Very good food for a reasonable price, which is all you can ask for, especially in Barcelona where the prices can get steep very quickly.
La BarcelonetaLa Barceloneta homes a satisfied quantity of small bars or clubs, where one can eat dinner or order a drink until the wee hours of the early morning. Upon arrival to the beach, the environment and atmosphere of La Barceloneta changes. Today, the cosmopolitan neighborhood reaches its maximum entertainment factor in the summer.
Thank you all for visiting and reading this travel series. The response was really big which I'm very happy about. If you have missed previous parts you can view them through the links at the top of this post. It won't be long before a new travel series starts...
