We spent half a day in the Port Vell area. Very nice area due to the recent developments from the Olympics. Packed with eateries and shopping spots. There is also a decent cinema if you fancy a movie with the local (movies in English!).

I love the sea, and pretty much everything related to it, so my review may be a little bit one-sided. And yet, you should take a walk around here and have and look at both the old and the new structure. If it is a sunny day, it is perfect.

Tired of the crowds in La Rambla, or being lost among small streets in Gothic & Le Born, turning to Port Vell is a great choice to help you release all the tensions. Beautiful scenery, fresh air, sip some coffee, take a relaxing walk, everything you need is here...

A great place for catching a boat, maybe the cable car or even a film or something to eat, great views, nice walks, right at the heart of the city and a short stones throw from Las Rambas
