On Tuesday night over 200 residents of Barceloneta collected in protest against drinking tourism in the area. The locals want to put an end to the letting of holiday villas which attract hundreds of tourists every summer along with a growing drinking culture.
Barcelona has long been popular with young tourists looking to relax and explore during the summer months however it seems that there is an increasing drinking tourism that is causing havoc within the streets and beaches of Barceloneta.
With reports of public nudity, public drinking and overbearing noise, it’s no wonder that the local’s tolerance of anti-social behaviour has reached its limit.
They are now looking to improve Barceloneta’s reputation and reclaim it as a pleasant area where both residents and tourists integrate happily.
