    This is the Olympic Harbor,it was built also for the games in Barcelona in 1.992.Now you'll find here a new part of the city with a lot of nice restaurants,a shopping center,and many small shops,is also a nice place to walk along the sea promenade and see the view of Mediterranean Sea.

    You can go there day or night

    Also this harbour was built just for the 1992 olympic games. It's one of the most important areas facing the sea, so there are many restaurants, bars and discos. This circumstances made it a place of fun nightlife.

    Sightseeing and in the unlikely event of rain just go down to the waterfront there's the best IMAX I've come across.
    Excellent place to waste ample amounts of film on sights, architecture, scenery you name it..

    on the way to the Olympic beach of Barcelona, the two towers in the background are hotels; I was told they are the most expensive in the whole of Europe, actually I am not too interested in that kind of information; first my bank account says no to such luxury, and then I just like the hostels, I think I would prefer them even if I was a millionaire; gladly I am not, so I don't even have to think about that choice

    Olympic harbour and the beaches
    Barcelona was not know for it's beaches but nowdays there are couple of them in the downtown. On the harbour you will find nice restaurants, clubs, bars and cruiseboats. International atmosphere is dominated by 2 new skyscrapers. It's really nice to walk along the promenade.

    From the mountain to the sea. The Vila Olímpica was totally built as the village for Olympic sportsmen in 1992. A complete new and huge area was designed. Two skyscrapers (the Arts Hotel and the offices Torre Mapfre, both 153 meters high) and a leisure port were set up. Some beaches are just beside the Vila Olímpica. For those wanting a nude beach, there is the Sant Sebastià beach, at the neighbour Barceloneta, traditional fishermen neighbourhood.

    And Look at All of the Boats

    Thousands of people dock their boats in Barcelona-it's quite a sight. I tried to dock my dinghy there, but was turned down. Boy, these people have class! :-)

    Lots of boats-too bad I get seasick!

    The harbour is one of the newest parts of Barcelona. You can enjoy the seebreeze on a hot summerday.

    You will find a huge shoppingcenter at the harbour. It seemed a little deserted to me.
