The Mediterranean Sea is really important in Barcelona. The city’s history can not be understood without the presence of the sea. We propose a journey in time through Ghotic, Born and Barceloneta Quarters, to explore in depth the relationship between the city and the sea.
We will visit:
– The old Roman Gate to the sea and the remains of the little colony linked to the natural harbour.
– Santa Maria del Mar and the whole neighborhood of the bank who grew thanks to the maritime trade.
– Barceloneta Baroque Quarter of the eighteenth century created on a peninsula reclaimed from the sea.
– The reforms, with the Olympics and the tourism boom, have been made on the waterfront.
