SIRENS S.A.Over 100 years in the port of BarcelonaSirens S.A. is an experienced sailor and proud heritage that for over a hundred years gives those who want the most attractive and intriguing views of Barcelona from a beautiful perspective, the Mediterranean. The company began its journey Swallows in 1888, coinciding with the World Expo in Barcelona, the end of the Rambla and the construction of the monument to Columbus.Swallows have been, since then, an exceptional witness of the dramatic changes experienced by the port and Barcelona in general.The activity began with three swallows calls Omnibus I, II and Omnibus Omnibus III, which ran on steam. They ran from the Portal de la Pau to Barceloneta (Banys de Sant Sebastia).Over the years, the company consolidated and progressively swallows many locals used as a means of transportation to the Baths.During the Civil War, the company was closed. Then he resumed his activity.With the first extension of the port, Las Golondrinas expanded its fleet and route. Was maintained Banys route to Sant Sebastia and started a new to the breakwater. Over the years and the removal of trams "gardener", was also deleted the line bathrooms. The line of the breakwater has lasted until today and has allowed many citizens had their baptism of sea in our boats.After the Olympic Games in 1992, opened a new route: Las Golondrinas harbor and coastline itinerary that allows des seafront view of the sea. To this end a new ships were built, the catamaran type, called Trimar and buses.In 2009 we added a new ship to Las Golondrinas: Antina G.SIRENAS S.A..

As far as seeing the city goes this is a waste of time but it is relaxing and the sea air is pleasant after the heat of the city. Recovery benefit rather that tourist benefit. Would be better with a commentary

The 40 minutes tour is the most interesting. The 90 minutes tour is the ferry back and forth to the other harbour. A nice way to cool down on a hot day.

... and back again, but that's basically it. No explanations were given, I had to listen to the radio (the music was OK) instead. I have not tried other harbour tours, but there may be better ones available.

I paid 15 Euros for the 90 minute boat tour. I may have read wrong but I thought it included a guide that would talk a bit about the city and sites. It was strictly a cruise along the coast with no guided talk. If you want to relax for 90 minutes then this is for you. I wish I... More

When you're sick of trapsing around the Ramblas the best thing you can do is go for a cruise. The sea air and sea ions will freshen you up for another battle with the city. Cheap at 15 euros and very easy to find. It's near to the statue of Christopher Columbus ( 20 metres seaward). You get a fantastic... More

Very pleasant 45 minute boat ride. Perfect for getting shots of the city & monuments with the mountains in the background. Great views of World Trade Center, industrial shipping cranes, the sea wall, inner harbor & different types of ships also Mont Juic & the cable cars running from it. Relaxing, pretty smooth, not too choppy ride. They do come... More

A really nice 40 minute tour of the harbour, a short pleasant and relaxing tour of various points in the harbour and a close up look at the floating hotels, a must an a warm October day for a cooling sea breeze. caution in summer the harbour is a sun trap so put plenty of lotion on.

Staying in La Rambla

Neighborhood Profile
La Rambla
Barcelona's most famous street was once a dry riverbed. Now, La Rambla is a 1200-meter boulevard, and a major draw for visitors. During the day, La Rambla fills with pedestrians, some of which stroll past impressive human statues and artists while others take a break to people-watch while enjoying a drink at one of the many terraces. Housed here is the iconic Boqueria Market that offers one of the most varied and appetizing selections of local produce and specialty meats and treats. While it’s important for tourists to keep an eye on their belongings at all times, this area is most safely explored in the daytime and is a must see for everyone who visits.
