La Terracccita is a restaurant located on Plaça de Joan Coromines in Barcelona, Spain.

La Terracccita is the quiet terrace of the CCCB bar restaurant that is located just behind MACBA and CCCB. It has a wide range of breakfasts, creative menus and refreshing cocktails. It also offers a catering service for private events.

Joan Coromines i Vigneaux also frequently spelled Joan Corominas (Barcelona, Catalonia, Spain 1905 – Pineda de Mar, Catalonia, Spain, 1997) was a linguist who made important contributions to the study of Catalan, Spanish, and other Romance languages.

His main works are the Diccionario crítico etimológico de la lengua castellana (1954-1957), in four volumes, first version of his etymological dictionary of Spanish (with an abridged version, Breve diccionario etimológico de la lengua castellana, first published in 1961); the Diccionari etimològic i complementari de la llengua catalana, which investigates the origin of most words in the Catalan language (9 volumes); the Onomasticon Cataloniae, documenting place and person names, old and new, in all the Catalan-speaking territories (8 volumes); and the Diccionario crítico etimológico castellano e hispánico, the most thorough etymological dictionary of Spanish extant today. Following this research, he—along with Koldo Mitxelena—made key contributions to the study of the Basque language’s geographical extent across the Pyrenees during the early Middle Ages.

Coromines studied at the University of Barcelona, and started working on linguistics from an early age. At the same time, he held strongly Catalanist convictions all his life. He was forced into exile after the Spanish Civil War, eventually holding a professorship at the University of Chicago, in 1948. He returned to Catalonia later, and spent his last years working on his main works: the etymological dictionaries and the Onomasticon.

He refused several prizes from the Spanish government, in protest at the treatment of the Catalan language and culture in Spain.

In honor of Coromines, in April 2006 the University of Chicago inaugurated the Càtedra Joan Coromines d’Estudis Catalans, a teaching chair for visiting professors of Catalan language and literature.

La Barceloneta is a neighborhood in the Ciutat Vella district of Barcelona, Catalonia, Spain. The neighborhood was constructed during the 18th century for the residents of the Ribera neighborhood who had been displaced by the construction of the Ciutadella of Barcelona. The neighborhood is roughly triangular, bordered by the Mediterranean Sea, the Moll d’Espanya of Port Vell, and the El Born neighborhood. This neighborhood has its own flag, and is serviced by its own stop on the Barcelona Metro line 4. This is a good starting point for whatever itinerary there may be to adventure through La Barceloneta. The yellow line, L4, which is the metro line that stops at La Barceloneta, is the most popular for pickpocketing. The neighborhood can also be discovered by taking Las Gorondrinas, which leave from the front port of the Columbus monument. This way the marine strip can be discovered, but the real charm of this neighborhood is by getting lost in the side streets or alleyways. Torre Sant Sebastià is the terminus of the Port Vell Aerial Tramway; opened in 1931, it connects La Barceloneta with Montjuïc across Port Vell.

La Barceloneta is known for its sandy beach (which made an appearance in Don Quixote, book 2) and its many restaurants and nightclubs along the boardwalk. Over the past several years the quality of the sand on the beach has become a source of continued controversy. In February 2008, the World Health Organization began an inquiry designed to ascertain whether the sand meets WHO beach health and safety guidelines.

With its modernity, La Barceloneta continues to inhabit the scent of salt and marine life. For many, this is considered a luxury. La Barceloneta also attracts many cruise ships to dock.

Among the attractions on Barceloneta’s beach are German artist Rebecca Horn’s “Homenatge a la Barceloneta” monument, and, where the beach gives way to the Port Olímpic, Frank Gehry’s modern “Peix d’Or” sculpture.

In the center of the neighborhood, there is a small museum, called “Casa de la Barceloneta”, which is housed in a preserved building dating back to 1761. Admission to the museum serves as an insight into the evolution of the neighborhood and its history. The house has a stone façade with letters and number engraved that are inscriptions of the plots used in construction.

Museu Can Framis de Barcelona is located on Carrer de Roc Boronat in Barcelona, Spain.

Can Framis is the latest Fundació Vila Casas museum, an art center devoted to the promotion of contemporary Catalan painting. Located in the old Can Framis factory complex, the museum displays more than 250 paintings from the sixties to the present made by artists born or currently living in Catalonia. In addition to the permanent collection which is divided in three floors, Can Framis Museum has an area dedicated to temporary exhibitions named Espai Aø. The permanent collection is updated periodically, and two new temporary exhibitions are opened every three months.

The museum has an education program that offers activities designed for pre-school to secondary school, as well as for people with special educational needs. They also offer guided visits.

The museum is open to the public Tuesday to Saturday from 11.00–18.00 and on Sundays from 11:00–14:00 h.

The Can Framis Museum is located in Roc Boronat Street in the 22@ District of Barcelona, Spain. It was opened to the public on April 27, 2009. The museum is situated in an old textile factory that dates backs to the 18th century and was originally owned by the Framis family. Over the years it fell into disuse, becoming a monument to the industry of the area. The renovation was directed by the architect Jordi Badia, founder and director of BAAS architecture studio. This project consisted of restoring two current factory buildings and constructing a new one to link them, coinciding with the site of another former warehouse which, as a whole, forms a courtyard. This square contains a Jaume Plensa sculpture named Dell’Arte (1990), a donation from the Vila Casas Foundation to the city of Barcelona in 2012.

All the interventions were made in situ using concrete in line with the old structure. Outside, the lime mortar which blends with the existing stonework merges with the exposed concrete of the new buildings. The façade then becomes a collage of textures, niches and coverings which reflect the different ups-and-downs of the building throughout time. The Can Framis Museum is located 1.5 metres (4.9 ft) below the contemporary city roads, since the factory was built based on the former agricultural sketches prior to the implementation of the Cerdà Plan (1860). The road surface is covered by ivy and other plants and the museum is surrounded by white poplars and oaks. Inside, the museum is divided in 36 rooms and there’s an elevator in each of the three floors.

The permanent painting collection is housed in the Can Framis Museum of Contemporary Painting. It has almost 700 pieces between the ones exhibited and the ones that are kept in the warehouse. The museum displays more than 250 paintings dating from the 1960s onwards by a wide range of artists born or living in Catalonia selected by the private collector and owner Antoni Vila Casas.

Carrer A is a street in Carrer Lletra A de la Zona Franca in Barcelona, Spain.

Zona Franca also called in Catalan: Polígon Industrial de la Zona Franca) is a logistics and industrial area located in the Sants-Montjuïc district of Barcelona, Spain. Together with the adjacent Port of Barcelona it forms the neighborhood Zona Franca – Port.

It is located in the Llobregat Delta between the Port of Barcelona and Barcelona Airport. The metro line L9 station Parc Logístic connects Zona Franca with central Barcelona and the rest of the metropolitan area since 2016.

Opened in 1953, the original SEAT, S.A. automotive industry factory and production line is located in Zona Franca. Following SEAT’s acquisition by the German automotive giant Volkswagen Group, the plant no longer produces cars, but is instead now solely used as a press shop, stamping out metal body panels. It currently employs 1,269 people.

The area also has a Nissan Motors factory, which produces the Nissan Navara, the Nissan Pulsar and the Nissan NV200 (both electric and combustion engine versions).

The Mercabarna food-trading estate opened in the Zona Franca in 1971 with the transfer of the central fruit and vegetable market, which since 1921 had been in el Born. It was followed by the slaughterhouse in 1979, the central fish market in 1973 and the central flower market in 1974.

The origins and the name of the area date back to an attempt to create a free port in Barcelona which ultimatively failed in 1929. With Catalonia’s industrialisation in the 1950s the space was used to construct factories.

Parc Central de Poblenou is located on Avinguda Diagonal in Barcelona, Spain.

The park of the Poblenou Center is located in the Sant Martí district of Barcelona, in the Provençals del Poblenou district, which gives it its name. It is in the so-called District 22 @, an area dedicated to the new economic and technological sectors aimed at development and innovation. It was created in 2008 with a project by the French architect Jean Nouvel, author of the Torre Agbar skyscraper in the Plaza de las Glorias Catalanas, very close to this park.

The park has a triangular shape, in the space formed by Diagonal Avenue and the streets of Bac de Roda and Marroc, within which it is divided into three areas formed by the intersection of the streets of Bilbao and Espronceda —transversally— and that of Cristóbal de Moura – lengthwise. The park area is completely fenced by high concrete walls covered with climbing plants, which isolate it from the surrounding noise, since Diagonal Avenue has a high traffic density. These walls regularly have circular windows decorated with silhouettes of birds, and the access doors to the park are openwork grilles shaped like birds. It should be noted that the entrance arch of these doors is inspired by the one designed by Antoni Gaudí for access to Finca Miralles, in Sarrià.

It’s just four blocks from the Rambla de Poblenou towards the Parc de la Ciutadella and an energetic and creative stretch of the city.

In the building above, you’ll find the Valkeria Hub Space.
