We walked all through this area and had lunch at one of the restaurants that dot the shore. The beaches are nice. Don't leave your bags unattended though! Water is warm and not rocky. So nice to swim and sun bathe!

The port is simply stunning, we enjoyed a lovely walk around this area, lots if places to admire the view. Within the port there are areas to buy food and drinks, I'd definitely recommend getting a drink and sitting to admire the view!

We always enjoy sitting in the Tapas Tapas restaurant and watch the activity in the port area. Small boats, catamarans, cruise boats, sail boats, motor boats and the drawbridge that lets the traffic go by. Kids and adults on electric scooters, bicycles, wheel chairs, babies in strollers. The area has many restaurants from the 92 Olympics in the area also.

The port is modern and clean with restaurants and shops. It is a good hour break from the sunbathing on Barcelona beach too.

It would be a shame to visit Barcelona and miss its 2,000 year old port. We sat on a bench and soaked up the sun, watching the sea birds and fish and sailboats. We loved the Columbus Monument and the beautiful architecture of the buildings. This is a free experience you'll remember long after the trip has ended. It's at... More

It is a nice location for an afternoon walking tour. Plenty of boats and yachts parked there. Enjoy afternoon weather during summer days, and walk besides the sea

We always find ourselves taking a stroll through Port Vell in every visit to Barcelona. A stunning stroll to take after the sun sets for drinks or dinner and a great place for people watching

Neighborhood Profile
Barrio Gotico (Barri Gotic)
With its iconic, old-Europe streets and alleys, this picturesque neighborhood is the very heart of Barcelona. It blends historic artifacts from its days under Roman dominion up through the Spanish Civil War with a vibrant modern-day culture of artisan shops and authentic culinary experiences. Avid explorers will be thrilled to discover quaint terraces and plazas brought to life by the many small bars and local musicians lasting late into the night. Fashionistas will be drawn to Portal de L’Angel, which is lined with well-known brand names and smaller boutique stands.
