History

A square

Els Pescadors is located near the sea front in a square in Poblenou. The square, which began as a place for hardy fishermen to meet and tell their tales, has gone on to pay witness to the arrival of the first railway, the industrial revolution, labour struggles, civil war, poverty and the harshness of postwar repression. And of course, the more most recent and positive citywide revolution that came with the Barcelona Olympics.
