Great views

Walking on this walkway across the marina will give you wonderful views of the Marina while you get in some exercise for all of that good Barcelona food.

In Port Vell you can view all the new, big and even bigger yachts, you can sit down in a restaurant and enjoy the views and the day, or even go shopping in the shopping mall. You get a great view from the port to the Montjuic hill. It's a perfect place for a stroll. Many people though. But still... More

Lovely to walk past the harbour as you come off the Ramblas and it seems like the bustling city is miles away. There are some good,well-priced restaurant with pleasant harbour views. A stroll to the mall is also scenic and is a good place to have a coffee

This was one of many spots on our long walk from our hotel to the beaches and we enjoyed exploring the area.

A nice place to hang out with restaurants elbow to elbow but most of the time at least during the day are begging for your business and the rows of boats when inspected more closely are for sale and just sit idle.

Walked down here form Las Ramblas. Nice to look at all the boats and get a cool breeze away from the traffic.

Visited here by day and in the evening as well. By day it is a lovely place to wander and take in the views across the harbour. Very smart with lots of stylish restaurants and bars. By night it comes alive with lights and burners as a lively place to eat. Very nice area to visit if you get chance.

Excellent selections of traditional Spanish cuisine near the water. Good setting for a romantic dinner or a group outing. The owner is quite charming and will great you as you enter. Good location for an outdoor meal.

The Port was within walking distance from my hotel and I was with some folks from my tour group. Gorgeous views, plenty to see walking around the marina area. I spent four days and three night here and explored a lot of the city by walking and using the metro! Had a blast.

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.
