The result of a long historical process, the Port Vell is the oldest part of the Port of Barcelona, converted into a space of reference for locals and tourists and perfectly integrated into the urban life of the city. Its facilities are currently destined to pleasure boats.

The best starting point to get to the Old Port is the Portal de Pau Square, which communicates directly with the Drassanes Quay, place from where sail the Golondrinas (the swallows), boats that make the tour of the harbor, the coast and the beaches of Barcelona, he mobile wooden passarela of the Rambla del Mar.

In promenade of Moll de la Fusta (Wood dock) we find a very original large sculpture called Barcelona Face, designed by the American artist Roy Lichtenstein, and the schooner Santa Eulalia, a lovely historic three-masted sailboat that you can visit.
In the central part of the port stands the Moll d'Espanya (Spain Dock), occupied by the Maremagnum, a large shopping and entertainment complex, and the Barcelona Aquarium.
Around the Old Port there are several important buildings such as the Palau de Mar that houses the History Museum of Catalonia, the Barcelona Customs, the headquarters of the Port Authority of Barcelona and the World Trade Center.
