Olympic Harbor - Village, Barcelona
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.
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! :-)
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.
Go for a walk around the Olympic Port...the beach near by is wonderful too... The Olympic village is now a yuppie village with most of its own facilities...
