History

  • This beach was used by the city's elite in the 19th century and was the first to allow men and women to swim in the same area.
  • In 2004, a statue to commemorate swimming sports was built by sculptor Alfredo Sanz.
  • In 2009, the far end of the beach welcomed a new and massive building, the hotel W Barcelona. It was created by Ricardo Bofill and has caused some confrontation as it has altered Barcelona's skyline.[1]
