A couple of years prior to the 1992 Olympic Games this area underwent a major “makeover”; it was transformed from an industrial wasteland into a great neighbourhood which simply did not exist before the collaboration of it’s four main architects, Martorell, Bohigas, Mackay and Puigdomènech. The area was originally transformed to house the thousands of athletes that were to perform in the 92 Olympics, and later were sold off as residential units and so one of Barcelona’s newest neighbourhoods was created… the result was a spacious and comfortable neighbourhood…
Points of reference for the area are the two towers that can be clearly seen from afar; both towers are the same in height, 153.5 m and the tallest in Spain. One is the very famous Hotel Arts which is surrounded by scaffolding and was designed by Bruce Gram and Frank Gehry and the other tower is the Mapfre tower, which consists mainly of office space….
Another important landmark of this area is the Peix sculpture by Frank Gehry, creator of the famous Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao and Hotel Arts… this headless, golden fish is quite a sight, like it or hate, it is quite impressive and located on the promenade. The promenade is an ideal spot for a leisurely stroll, great for biking, skating and boarding especially during summer months..….
The beaches, although man-made are great and can be pretty packed during the hot summer months; these beaches have what are called beach-bars or “chiringuitos” which play cool music and serve tasty snacks and create a very pleasant atmosphere…..
Most social activity takes place in the Port Olympic seafront, with its docked boats, restaurants, nightclubs and pubs which make for a very lively and energetic atmosphere especially at night time..
The promenade stretches along towards the area known as Diagonal Mar and running parallel to this is the residential units build in early 90’s and their gardens or communal areas, both sides are linked by bridges, allowing the visitor to reach the beaches by foot and avoiding the heavy traffic…
This new residential area by the sea, with its man made beaches, promenade, restaurants and night life is one of the most frequented areas in Barcelona.
