I was told Port Vell means the old port. However, you will see a place with brand new facelift which offers a strong contrast to the Gothic area just across the street. Port Vell stretches from the Columbus Monument to the Barceloneta, offers endless possibilities to enjoy your leisure time, such as Imax Theater, Aquarium, Maremagnum Shopping Mall and many other eating joints. Following a long historic process, the Port Vell, with its landmark buildings and monuments, now gleams like one of the most valuable pearls on the coast.
Walk up the wooden plank bridge to view the privately owned boats that dock in the harbor. Cable cars are moving up the tower. Sea gulls are flying free. Columbus standing tall on the monument. Water sculptures floating on water. At times the bridge will open up for the boat to pass through. What a magnificent sight.
Don't miss it. It is one of the Bus Turistic destinations (Red Route).
