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..

We have paid for a 1h30 tour but the ocean was rough and they keep all time in port where there is really nothing to see. Nobody told that the ship will not do normal route. We have to argue with attendent to have our money back. Do not go if the ocean isn't calm. Really don't even worth 15... More

Took the 1 hour 30 mins trip around the Barcelona coast, starting at colom. Lovely trip, would definitely recommend. Price very reasonable and refreshments and toilet facilities on board. Highlight of the trip was a couple of dolphins swimming alongside!

It's evening and it's hot and humid. You've eaten and you're now wandering around the harbour area wondering what to do next, when up pops a friendly salesman. After a little negotiating, you're off around the bay and back, watching the sky turn all shades of sunset, whilst listening to live jazz played by a very talented duo. Brilliant... we... More

A cute, relatively inexpensive way to plant your feet in the middle or at the end of a few miles of Barcelona sightseeing enjoying the cool Mediterranean breeze and the harbor. Located conveniently near the Christopher Columbus statue at one end of La Rambla. I think they have multiple options - I went for the 40 minute tour which cost... More

Las Golondrinas is located at the end of La Rambla on the water (or the beginning of La Rambla if you start at the water's end ;-) ). I really just wanted a moment to sit and relax, and enjoy Barcelona without walking. I happened upon Las Golondrinas and they offered a few different excursions, from 40 minutes on up... More

June 2016. Took the 40 minute trip - 7.40 Euros. Had just arrived in Barcelona and walked down from the hotel. Just a relaxing boat trip around the harbour. I was interested to see the commercial side - normally out of bounds to tourists. No commentary - good! Man playing the accordion - bad! Those reviewers wanting a full explanation... More

Took 3 types of their trips. The longer trip along the cost past the beach was great. Nice and relaxing and a great way to view the coast. Only fault was constantly having a camera pointed at you and then asked to pay €7 for a picture you didn't want. Worth spending either 40mins or 90mins on board though

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.
