Barcelona is one of the most tourist and visited the world’s cities. Its streets are always full of people, regardless of the season or the time of year. It is the preferred destination for many tourists: famous for its good weather, its delicious Mediterranean cuisine and its spectacular architecture, cradle of artists such as Gaudi. But Barcelona is much more than a simple tourist city. Probably many of you already know its streets most known and tourist, as well as its discos, restaurants and famous monuments.
But what about the other Barcelona? There is another city after this first surface layer: a different and surprising city that houses a rich subculture. Art, music, film, gastronomy and a world to discover! Other neighborhoods begin with an alternate route through the city. Does everyone knows Ciutat Vella (old town), which includes the G Barri? ICT, Raval and Borne, and formed the historical and monumental Centre of Barcelona. But if we move away from the do always brimming with neighborhoods of el Born or the G? ICT and we arrived to the neighborhood of Barceloneta, we will give with what old outside a fishing village, located between the port and the beaches. It’s a neighborhood much more authentic and less crowded than the others. This area was built on a template of fully parallel narrow streets that give it a certain air to Naples. The Barcelona is full of restaurants specialized in fish and seafood.
Poble Sec is a charming neighbourhood between the Raval and Montjuic. Despite its central location and its lively nightlife, it’s a neighborhood away from the radar of tourists. In most of the guides even appears and when it does, get included in the itinerary of Montjuic, with its fountains, museums and Olympic constructions. But it is an ideal area to stay, given the amount of hotels and cheap apartments offers.
