What you see and what you get are one and the same in Barceloneta.
Along the quayside you have many restaurants where you can watch the yachts come and go, but the food (I have been told) is only fair to middling. On the other side of Barceloneta you will find some nice beaches. In the center there is the Merkat de la Barceloneta and again here we loved the market, so clean you could almost eat off the floor and the displays of food nicely laid out for your enjoyment to purchase.
Also you can catch the cable car ride to Montjuic from Barceloneta which gives you a great view into the city from a bird's eye view. The photo of the beaches was taken from the cable car.
We also found there the ultra modern Gas Company building (in photo #3) and then just a few paces beyond that the building in the last photo. Round, tall and with a conical top, we could not find it on our maps or guide books.
