Maremagnum Barcelona, Shopping Center and Leisure Resort: A Bird's Eye View

Maremagnum Barcelona, Shopping Center and Leisure Resort

Maremagnum Barcelona due to its privileged location is a sort of magnet that attracts tourists and locals alike. The shopping center does not hold the best stores in town, neither the best restaurants or the most thrilling attractions in the city but the fact is this renown place has a little of it all and it happens to be by the sea, in this sort of detached wharf where you seem to be floating on wooden planks spellbound by the smell of saltpeter, watching seagulls fly and shoals of fish gather around a crumb of bread somebody dropped into the calmed waters.

You are in Barcelona but at the same time you feel you can watch the skyline from the distance and abstract yourself from the context. Certainly Maremagnum is a must see. The Aquarium, the paintings market under the front pergola and the 3D IMAX movie theater are recommended visits.

As previous posts just offered details I thought it would be better to show the whole scene as seen from Montjuic mountain. Don't forget La Barceloneta in the background


  1. Excellent shot! And I totally agree with you about the 'charms' of Maremagnum.

  2. Looks like a fantastic place to spend an afternoon! The color of the water is wonderful!

  3. una buena vista del centro comercial

  4. Even if it doesn't have the best restaurants and shops, it still seems an important place to check out if you're visiting Barcelona, or a nice place to hang out if you live in Barcelona!

    A very nice panoramic view that helps us see what it is all about!

  5. I could probably not afford do dine at the best restaurant so chances are this is where you would find me.

  6. What a joy this sweeping view this gorgeous shot gives us! I now have a deeper understanding of the setting of Barcelona. I would love to visit the aquarium and look around here but I would ask you where the secret best spots are to dine and shop. After all, if I was lucky enough to visit there one day it would probably be the only time in my life to be there and I would want to experience as much as I could!

  7. Buena fotografia con un azul diferente a lo que vemos normalmente por ahí. un trabajo formidable, saludos.

  8. Great view. Love the color of the water.
