Barcelona is one of the most dynamic and trendy cities in the world and the third most popular European tourist destination. The capital of Catalonia features breathtaking Art Nouveau architecture designed by Gaudi, and Fine Arts museums hosting the most extensive collection of Picasso and Miro’s masterpieces. The enchanting seaside city features sun-drenched beaches, forest-covered hills, and a world-class drinking and dining scene.
One of the most exciting leisure and touristic districts throughout Barcelona is Port Olímpic, with its extensive offering of shops, clubs, and restaurants. It was the site of the sailing competitions during the 1992 Olympic Games. This modern, stylish sports marina is surrounded by two vast towers: the Mapfre Tower and the Hotel Arts. Frank Gehry’s spectacular gleaming copper sculpture, ‘El Peix d’Or’, is located at its base. These skyscrapers form the impressive landmark and are visible along the beaches on either side of the marina, Barceloneta, and Nova Icària. Sunbathing lovers and water sports amateurs can enjoy the sparkling Mediterranean and the Iberian sun. Port Olímpic is also a famous nightlife area thanks to a vast array of exclusive restaurants and nightclubs with beach-side terrace.
The trendy marina is the heart of Barcelona’s yachting activity and a fabulous place to begin your luxury yacht charter vacation. From there, you can explore the picturesque and rugged coastline of the Costa Brava or cruise around the Mediterranean. From Barcelona, you can sail to the thrilling Balearic Islands, Majorca, Menorca, and Ibiza.
