Platja de Bogatell
  • East Route

For many years Barcelona, lived with its back towards the sea, which allowed the beaches to become run down, affected as they were by industrial facilitiesor by the presence of small shanty towns. The construction of the Villa Olímpica permitted the recovery of the seafront and its beaches, creating a pleasantesplanade or boardwalk that runs alongside various beaches such as NuevaIcaria beach, Bogatell beach, Mar Bella beach and Nueva Mar Bella beach.Behind Bogatell beach lies Pueblonuevo cemetery; the first to be built outsidethe city walls, in 1775. It is open to the public and is of great interest to visitors, who can admire large funerary monuments and sculptures from thelate 18th and the 19th century.
