  • Most, including the Ramblas Barcelona is filled with people who, on the other hand, port Bell is a really peaceful and leisurely watch the ship into and out of a calm sea, where you can see the place. Five o'clock to go and sit down with a can of beer until it exists, is the best.

  • Stroll through the port. There are all kinds of boats, luxury yachts and sailboats. Quite a few restaurants in the area. What was and what is, before the Olympics I was degraded and all change to better.

  • Be prepared to be greeted by extremely rude and untrained staff. Been visiting the marina regularly since 7 months and they treat us, students and coworkers, like lechers.
  • Perfect thanks for the good time
