If you would like a break from the bustle of central Barcelona, make your way to Poble Nou, a small village area just a five minute walk from Mar Bella beach. Plaça de Prim is the most emblematic square of Poble Nou. It was constructed in 1851, once a meeting place for fisherman and now famous as one of oldest squares in the area. The tranquillity of this tree-lined square gives you a feel of the old coastal fishing villages. It is the location of one of the finest fish restaurants in Barcelona. Els Pescadors is an excellent option for fresh fish in a sophisticated old tavern with marble tables and floors, and traditional wooden rafters on the ceiling.
