Catalunya’s largest port is divided into three sections: Port Vell (Old Port), the industrial port, and the Free Port. Port Vell is by far the most popular zone, and the one most worth visiting.
Port Vell has got a lot worth seeing, including some nearby museums and monuments. Food carts line the port as well, so feel free to indulge in some unhealthy on-the-go snacks.
The port’s most iconic feature is the Rambla del Mar. This stylish walkway bridges the city side of the port to the central area, where there is a shopping mall, restaurants, and even an IMAX theater.
By night, Port Vell lights up, welcoming both tourists and locals for a relaxing hangout, romantic night by the sea, or a good ol’ fashioned Barcelona-style skateboard session.
