Barcelona Harbor: Las Golondrinas Sightseeing Boat

Barcelona Harbor: Las Golondrinas Sightseeing Boat [enlarge]

This is a closer look on a very similar scene that I featured in my post Barcelona Harbor Cruise: A City Teaser. This time I added some extra effects to enhance the picture. Notice the Columbus Monument and the Harbor Authority building mentioned in the past and seen here from a shorter distance. The boat is one of the older Golondrinas (sightseeing boats company) cruising the harbor and I am taking the picture from a modern vessel run by the same company sailing not just the harbor but going along the coast till the Forum Area on the other part of the city.


  1. An inviting scene! I'd like to be on that sightseeing vessel. PS. What's the story on the protests against your King and Queen I've been hearing about on the news today??

  2. Excelente imagem, algo em que eu não tive tempo de andar.

  3. I see the Christopher Columbus is still pointing towards the new world!!

    I agree with Kate! I wish I were on that boat!

  4. Hi Kate. If you read my previous post about the flags somedays ago you will read some words about these demonstrations. I don't think it is something to discuss in this post which is not related. I guess every country with monarchies nowdays has followers, detractors...and people that simply don't care.

  5. Maybe next time Daniel!
    Yes, you are right Chris, your direction perhaps! :) So that makes you an inhabitant of the West Indies. "The New World was initially thought to be the easternmost part of the Indies by explorer Christopher Columbus, who had grossly underestimated the westerly distance from Europe to Asia. Later, to avoid confusion, the New World came to be called the "West Indies", whilst the original Indies came to be called the "East Indies" (Wikipedia)

  6. Adoro a tua cidade.


  7. Blue sky, blue water. Lovely.

  9. A great way to view the city.
    Sorry I haven’t visited as much as I would like lately. I have been hellish busy, not least because I am standing for election as a presidential officer in our teacher union – lots of extra campaigning work, and also trying to keep the home fires burning, and the blog going!

  11. Ahh! I remember riding on one of these boats about a year ago. The water was very choppy the day we went out. When a tourist, you need to do the tourist things! EJ
