Port Review: Barcelona

 Barcelona Review

The Capital city of Catalunya - a region of traditions, cuisine and language separate from the rest of mainland Spain. The port is in the city centre and is just a short walk from the world renowned Las Ramblas – full of shops, bars, restaurants, fabulous architecture, and the beach is within walking distance.

Gaudi – The foremost Catalan architect’s influence can be seen all over the city. The Sagrada Familia is a must visit. The still unfinished UNESCO world heritage site is a marvel to behold. It has been described as “the most extraordinary personal interpretation of Gothic architecture since the Middle Ages”. Next visit Park Guell, a beautiful Municipal Park full of Gaudi’s flourishes throughout, making it a unique green space to spend an afternoon.

Markets – Catalunya is famous for its food, so it is no surprise that there are markets galore. La Boqueria has everything from exotic fruits to freshly caught seafood, selling ice-creams and tapas prepared on the spot. Yum! If food is not your thing, why not visit Mercadillo de la Place de Sant Josep, a little market in the shade of the church where local artists come to sell their work.

 

How best to see Barcelona – there are a wide – range of shore excursions available. If you fancy seeing it on your own – buy a hop-on/hop-off bus ticket and set your own agenda. Public transport is abundant and easy to use and will take you to all of Barcelona’s famous attractions.
