Port Vell is the modern heart of the tourists’ Barcelona, even though its name translates to “Old Port.” There are multiple theaters, including an IMAX theater, and numerous shops. It’s also home to Europe’s largest aquarium. Take the time to see the bridge open up for a boat to pass, and look at the water to admire the swimming fish and floating sculptures.

  • If you do decide to come to Barcelona by car, parking at the Aquarium, in the old port a perfect option. You wander through the port to the Ramblas or to Barceloneta, in short you are so in Barcelona. The port is with beautiful walking promenades fine hiking area.
