Barcelona Sights



Port Review

Beyond the Columbus monument—behind the ornate Duana (now headquarters for the Barcelona Port Authority)—is the Rambla de Mar, a boardwalk with a drawbridge designed to allow boats into and out of the inner harbor. The Rambla de Mar extends out to the Moll d'Espanya, with its Maremagnum shopping center, IMAX theater, and the excellent aquarium. Next to the Duana you can board a Golondrina boat for a tour of the port and the waterfront or, from the Moll de Barcelona on the right, take a cable car to Montjuïc or Barceloneta. Trasmediterránea and the fleeter Buquebus passenger ferries leave for Italy and the Balearic Islands from the Moll de Barcelona, while at the end of the quay is Barcelona's World Trade Center and the Eurostars Grand Marina Hotel.
