The Port of Barcelona is the most important cruise port in the Mediterranean, managing more than 2 million passengers a year for both, pleasure cruises and ferry lines. There are 10 terminals in total, 6 of them are cruise terminals, 1 terminal for smaller cruisers, and 3 terminals for ferry lines.
Many Activities at Maremagnum
You might notice in particular that lots of people will flock to Maremagnum on Sundays. The reason that this is the case is that other malls can't be open on that day of the week. But at the Barcelona MareMagnum, you would never know that it is Sunday, as people are busy shopping, eating, watching movies, and enjoying the nightlife.
This area does have a lot of tourists, and it can get crowded. Along with the crowds and tourist come the pickpockets, so it is necessary that you keep an open eye in this regard. With that stated, however, the Port area is worth your time!
Other Famous Attractions
But that's not all that you will find at the Barcelona Port. There is also Barcelona's World Trade Center, The Port Cable Car (Transbordador Aeri del Port), the Maritime Museum, The Catalonia History Museum (at Palau de Mar) and the Columbus Monument, which was built in 1888.
You can also enjoy Las Golondrinas boat tours and helicopter tours or the weekend market. Or you can just relax at the port, enjoy the sun and watch as the ships go by. You can also hop on the air shuttle, which links the port with the Montjuic area.
