The area surrounding the apartment:
The Casals apartment is ideally situated between the old port of Barcelona or Port Vell and the gothic trendy area of El Born in Barcelona.

Also an eight minutes' walk away guests are treated to the trendy gothic El Borne district with its wonderful example of gothic architecture in the magnificent church Santa Maria del Mar.
The apartment building has been newly renovated in accordance with the local architecture and conserves the historic Modernist facade. The impressive entrance displays the original exposed walls, slate tiled flooring and beautiful wood panelling. The kitchen is fully equipped, the bedroom (which houses a queen sized bed) has been separated from the rest of the area by a waist high wall, the living room is a spacious and comfortable area where guests can hang out and watch TV, DVD:s or listen to music.

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…..
