Go out in the morning to run along the seaside. Look out through the balcony and breathe the scent of palm trees and the sun-bathed masts. And at noon, the smell of peixet fregit attracts both locals and tourists to the Barcelona seafront.
La Barceloneta has its own palette of scents that make it so unique and special. The smell of vermouth (always with an olive), bombas, sauteed shrimps, Russian salad, small transparent napkins, vocational waiters and stray cats ... I once had a boyfriend who disliked very much the smell of fried fish. But it was kind of reasonable, because he always wore flannel. But I guess you will not have that problem, because if you are looking for an apartment near the sea here in Barceloneta, so sure is that fried fish smell does not bother you as you never wear flannel.
