Barcelona Spain Tourist Information and City Guide
Port Vell (The Old Port) is Barcelona's historic port area. In recent years, it has been transformed into an entertainment district and harbor for expensive sailboats and luxury yachts.
The port is a popular tourist destination featuring a large shopping complex (Maremagum), an Imax Theatre and the Barcelona Aquarium.
The coast of Catalona is a popular destination for recreational sailing and cruising. There are many beautiful bays and coves along the Mediterranean coast.
Port Vell is located at the foot of Las Ramblas Boulevard. A pedestrian bridge called "La Rambla de Mar" effectively extends the boulevard into the sea.
