ElMaresme-Forum Barcadadria

El Maresme – Fòrum

The forum of cultures

El Maresme, literally “the marsh”, is the name of one of the districts of the Catalan coastline situated between el Barcelonès and la Selva.
Until the middle of the last century, this was all farmland. The large housing deficit of the 50s brought about the construction of apartment buildings and the subsequent creation of the neighbourhood. At that moment, however, other infrastructures were not taken into account and the area had to be remodeled years later. Nowadays, and thanks to the neighbourhood organization and the urban developments of the last couple of years, the place has the basic and necessary public service, besides other improved elements.
In this area, the fairgrounds which were used for the Fòrum de les Cultures (Cultural Forum) of 2004— a showcase and meeting point for different cultures in which proposals to makes this a more plural and sustainable world—were discussed.

Places of Interest

As the Forum area is so big it has a lot to offer in terms of having a good time while enjoying the sea breeze and the views on the Maresme, on the one side, and the Montjuïc mountains on the other. The sporting complex that is near-by is also a lovely place for a stroll. On leaving the Forum grounds, you will find a wide assortment of luxury hotels with views on the sea as well as the Gran Centro commercial Diagonal shopping centre. For 2014 it is foreseen that next to the Forum Park the city’s maritime zoo will be inaugurated, situated on a platform almost six hectares long reclaimed from the sea. All the maritime fauna that presently lives in the Barcelona Zoo will be moved to this new site.
