Good weather is approaching and outdoor activities begin to be on top of our to do list. One of the best places to practice outdoor activities is the beach, and one of the most beautiful beaches in the world is the Barceloneta. Now you can travel to Barcelona with the super fast Renfe-SNCF en Coopération trains and enjoy a pleasant and relaxing trip to the beautiful Barcelona. And once there, you can do these outdoor activities to enjoy the most of your visit to Barcelona.
The Barceloneta is one of the oldest neighborhoods in the city and has an atmosphere of its own that you will not find anywhere else. It still retains the essence of the fishing village it once was. And all this without giving up the nightlife, the fun and the huge and beautiful beaches that characterize the city of Barcelona.
