  • The port of Barcelona is probably one of the most popular tourist destinations in the city. During our visit, it growled before people from around the world. Nevertheless, a stroll along the promenade is an experience not to be missed. In addition to the numerous Cafés and restaurants, especially the views of the Marina with its countless boats liked us. Art lovers will find a variety of monuments and sculptures here. Those who would like to bring his credit card to use, shopping centre on the pier is recommended.

  • From this port you can enjoy beautiful views of the sea and the boats that are always coming. It is a show!

  • Nice place to visit when in Barcelona. Don't forget to walk in the neighborhood. The small road between buildings are beautiful.
