Port Vell is Barcelona´s former port area which has been completely remodelled into a prime location for leisure, shopping and dining. The result is very gentrified, touristy and glitzy but definitely worth visiting all the same. It´s nice enough to stroll around the marina and gaze at the glittering yachts and to have a drink and tapas at one of... More

This is one of the largest harbors I have ever seen with more major yachts of ship seagoing size all docked in one place. If you want to see superyachts up close this is the place. the Doctor hit me with a helpful vote.

It is a port that has a nice vista, so if you want a free activity and or you a little one in a prams you can easily walk along the port for fresh air (hopefully not to many smokers) and wander. The easiest way to the port is to walk the Ramblas, but watch your pockets as it is... More

A large & busy area of Barcelona which includes a huge shopping centre/restaurants, IMAX cinema & aquarium. The marina is interesting too....we enjoyed looking at the very expensive yachts. Plenty to see here including street entertainers & it makes a pleasant walk in the sunshine.

Staying in Barrio Gotico (Barri Gotic)

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.
