  • Beautiful street lined with Palm trees that are very exotic. It is about 800 meters (although it seems a lot more, because although officially ends at Cap de Barcelona, the Passeig d'isabel II continues with perspective and Avinguda del Marques of Argentera, ending at the Citadel Park) and runs parellela to the old port, starting with the Columbus Monument and heading north. Actually next door is a fast road, but you don't notice because underground. Flanked by the sea side by a wide sidewalk is a delight to drive, with views that gives over the whole area of the port, maremagnum, the Trade Center, the beautiful palazzo della posta, the captaincy General, la piazza del Duc de Medinaceli. Arrived at Cap de Barcelona, turning right towards the area of Barceloneta.
