We from our hotel all the way to the port and it was beautiful. There are lots of restaurants along the way and hookah bars. The aquarium is close by also.

That's just about it really... interesting buildings, yachts... take a jacket during the winter months as it's chillier than the city centre. Good if you enjoy walking and observing harbour-life and people-watching.

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.

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

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.

Neighbourhood Profile
Barrio Gotico (Barri Gotic)
With its iconic, old-Europe streets and alleys, this picturesque neighbourhood 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.
