I enjoyed visiting Port Vell both day and night. Aways a buzz of activity with yachts entering the port to large numbers of visitors enjoying all that it has to offer. Port Bell is particularly beautiful at night, full of life, lights and talented entertainers....More

So many vendors selling cheap MESSI shirts, nike knock-offs and African knick-knacks...it's like La Rambla with a view. Has beautiful potential but is overrun by cheap trinkets.

It is worth seeing but it is not what Barcelona is all about and you will find much more in the streets to the north rather than this area that is often frequented by tourists. Look elsewhere.

It was pleasant strolling on the waterfront, along the docks, past the yachts in the evening. We also visited the Maremagnum mall and Barceloneta Beach nearby

Port Vell offers some really nice and relaxing walks, especially just as the sun is setting. Really upmarket feel to this area of Barcelona, with loads of nice bars, restaurants, and a stone's throw away from the beach if that's your thing.
