Barcelona - Barceloneta & the Waterfront (PDF Chapter)
This is the Barceloneta & the Waterfront chapter from Lonely Planet’s Barcelona guidebook.
Barcelona’s long, sun-drenched waterfront provides a pleasant escape when you need a break from Gothic lanes and Modernisme. Northeast of the old city, here you’ll find tempting sea-food restaurants and waterfront bars along the palm-lined promenade.
- learn about Romans, Muslims, feudal lords and civil war freedom fighters at the Museu d’Història de Catalunya, followed by drinks in the rooftop restaurant
- step back in time at the fascinating Gothic shipyard Museu Marítim, and explore Barcelo-na’s rich maritime past
- study avant-garde paintings by contemporary Catalan artists at the Museu Can Framis in up-and-coming, formerly industrial neighbourhood of Poblenou
- restaurants & bars
