Marina Port Vell in Barcelona, Spain

Marina Port Vell in Barcelona

After showing you part of the History Museum of Catalonia at Palau de Mar building, here is a picture of the view from the roof and restaurant terrace of the museum. You can admire part of the Moll del Dipòsit in which Marina Port Vell is located. The Marina is surrounded by Barceloneta's restaurants and "tapas" bars and is 10 minutes away from the center. The place appeared recently in the news because of the many people living in boats and not sailing alleging that it's cheaper to dwell in a small vessel than buying or renting an apartment in the city. Notice the white building there in the background, it is the Imax Port Vell cinema, a little bit to its left you find Maremagnum Shopping Center and farther back you see Barcelona World Trade Center building. On the horizon the almost new highway bridge near the entrance to the port. Check this other photo where you have a wider view.


  1. Sounds just like the docklands area here in Melbourne. Oh and if I had one of those boats, I'm sure I'd like to live in it too! ( Or at least occassionally )

  3. how wonderful! when i see pictures of boats and yachts anchored like this, I always wonder how they get out without hitting another boat.

    Cool shot Carlos!

  5. It makes a change for me to see a marina somewhere else. Lisbon has so many now.
    And last Sunday, a lot of owners sailed their yachts and cabin cruisers out into the river to accompany out to sea the departure of the Tall Ships' race to Cádiz - a spectacular sight(my "photo reportage" still pending.)I don't see what can bewrongwith living onyour own boat, specially asyou have so many amenities all around the marina. Ideal! Maybe not much fun in the winter though.

  6. It is a nice view of this part of Barcelona!

  7. bona nit:
