Yacht trip on coast of Spain

My husband and I are taking a first time trip on the Windstar Yacht, the end of June. We are visiting Barcelona, Palma de Mallorca (Soller), Valencia, Cartagena, Almeria, Malaga and Cadiz for day trips (8 to 5ish) - on the yacht at night. We are 50, like to get out and explore, love good food and wine. Does anyone have any comments or suggestions for any of these cities?

Suggestions for Barcelona:

See Gaudí's spectacular Sagrada Familia. Buy tickets online to avoid long lines and waits: http://www.sagradafamilia.cat/sf-eng/?lang=0

Have lunch at Barcelona classic 7 Portes from 1836. Excellent, traditional Catalan food and an institution in town: http://www.7portes.com/angles/index.php
From the 175 year anniversary a couple of years ago: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ujDIsGzDO38

Or, if you prefer outdoor seating, seafront Merendero de la Mari down in the yacht harbor: http://www.merenderodelamari.com/index.php?lang=en#

Valencia:
See the Mercado Central food market: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ds8ryWd5aFw

Take a taxi 3-4 miles out of town, and have the best genuine Paella Valenciana in Casa Carmina: http://www.casacarmina.es/

Málaga:
See the Roman theater and the Moorish Alcazaba fortress right in the heart of the city: http://www.malagaturismo.com/en/tour...ail/alcazaba/6

Have lunch, indoor or outdoor, in El Pimpi just across the street from the Alcazaba and the Roman theater. http://www.elpimpi.com/en/

Picasso was from Málaga, so perhaps visit the Picasso museum and/or his birthhome. Both are just a few minutes walk from El Pimpi: http://www.andalucia.com/cities/mala...assomuseum.htm

Palma is a good harbour and the Marina is well placed for a walk in.

Malaga old town is one of my favorite Spanish towns. Enjoy the shops, the restaurants, the cstle, the museum and the church
