The area surrounding the apartment:
The Sorolla apartment is ideally situated near the old port of Barcelona or Port Vell and not far from the gothic trendy area of El Born in Barcelona.

Also a 12 minute walk away and guests are treated to the trendy gothic El Born district with it's wonderful example of gothic architecture in the magnificant Santa Maria del Mar church.
The apartment is a cosy retreat from the bustling and busy city centre in a recently renovated building. One of the great features of this apartment is the 30 second walk till your toes are sinking into the sand of the Barceloneta beach and the seaview is such a treat no matter what time of the day. The bedroom has a two single beds that can be placed together to make a spacious double bed and opens out into the living room area.

This old port area at the bottom of Las Ramblas was once a real eyesore with old factories and disused buildings, but has been transformed beyond recognition since the 1980’s. With lots to choose from, be it chic shopping, harbour side seafood treats, movies by the sea along with bars, discos and a world famous - and apparently Europe's biggest - aquarium have made this the perfect area for the visitor to Barcelona.
Thanks to the 1992 Olympics, Barcelona realised the enormous potential of its shoreline and beaches were quickly transformed from the “not so appealing” and filled with golden sand, imported palm trees, drainage systems, flood lighting and the promenades were landscaped. A main feature of these great beaches are the “beach bars” or chiringuitos that serve tasty snacks and play music….
Passeig Joan de Borbó is a restaurant lined boulevard where visitors can enjoy a tasty paella as they look on to the yacht marina, before or after lounging on Barceloneta beach. Behind this busy and elegant boulevard lies the real Barceloneta or “Little Barcelona”. Back in the early 1800’s these two storey houses became homes to fishermen and sailors but soon became so overcrowded that they were split in half and later quartered; these “quarts de casa” measured approx 30 m2. It is probably because of this overcrowded atmosphere that Barceloneta residents used to pile onto the streets to socialise, chat with neighbours, etc…It is for this reason that the area has maintained an exceptionally full street life with the district also being famous for its colourful local celebrations;
Plans for a new addition to this area include the tall sail-shaped hotel by Ricard Bofill, which no doubt will be an imposing sight once completed…
The Passeig Maritim esplanade is a common hangout for skaters, locals and visitors alike walking off the excesses of lunch…..
Barceloneta is a wonderful area, full of life, for the young and the old…..
