The Villa Olímpica neighbourhood was born as a result of the Olympic Games held in Barcelona in 1992, as it was here where most of the participating athletes were accommodated.
Located in a former industrial area in Poblenou, known as Icaria, this new construction also gave rise to new beaches, large green areas and public facilities for the city.
Prominent features in the neighbourhood are the two skyscrapers rising above the Olympic Port – the Mapfre tower and the Hotel Arts, standing at 144 metres high. Below them is an enormous golden fish designed by Frank Gehry.
The Olympic Port area offers a wide range of nautical activities and water sports, as well as over 40 bars, restaurants and clubs.
Just beside the port is Nueva Icaria beach, which is 400 metres long. It is considered a quiet beach, frequented by families and groups of friends There is a diverse range of facilities for all ages, including a playground, a ping-pong table, volleyball courts, drinking fountains, toilets, showers, bins, kiosks selling drinks and ice cream, sun loungers for hire, lifeguard stations and first-aid points, parking for cars and bicycles and an area adapted for people with reduced mobility, among others..
