Rambla del Mar is an ideal place for going for a stroll and taking in some brand new views of the city. Built on the sea, this gangway is one of Port Vell's most emblematic works, unique in the world. The Port Vell is Barcelona's largest leisure, recreational, commercial area, 55 ha of land next to the sea have been used to build large public walkways, offices, commercial premises, restaurants, bars, an immense aquarium, an I-Max cinema, a multi-cinema complex, Catalonia's History Museum, the Maritime Museum and a myriad fo sailing and sports areas. The P0rt Vell is a unique area, the liveliest and most relaxing place in Barcelona. One of the city's best attractions.
The entry to the wooden walkway. At the end is a huge mall, MAREMAGNUM. This bridge is a swing bridge that allows boats to enter and exit the harbour.
It's a lovely place to people watch, see the views, feed and watch the birds, and photograph everything.
Birds are aplenty, so are fishes. In these waters, we saw a large school of fish that of course delighted tourists. I wonder if fishing is banned in this area.
It's a buoy!!!! The most famous one or at least the most recognizable one. Each time I see this buoy as user image either on facebook or on flickr, I smile and nod. That user must have enjoyed Barcelona as much as I did. I am thinking about using this as my "avatar" too :D
This is the last attraction/spot we visited in Barcelona before we sailed for the Mediterranean, but I think I still have a post or two about this enchanting city before I start with cruise reporting/documentation/posting.
