We want to take you on a pictorial journey around Barcelona in our next few posts, and we decided to kick off with some of the terrific views that you get if you find your way to the ramparts of Montjuïc Castle. You have two choices to get there – by bus (either the 55 or 15o) or if you want something far more memorable, then use the funicular Montjuïc Cable Car.
View from Montjuïc Castle to the docks and the cruise ship terminal.
The famous Transbordador Aeri del Port cable car (the tower in the center left) and the now just as famous La Vela Hotel on the right.
Ariel shot of the Marina at Port Vell with the bridge to the aquarium and the cable car. A lovely area for a walkabout. A trip around the port on one of the boats that leave from the quay at bottom right of the photo is well worth taking time out for.
No wonder Barcelona is so popular, there are spectacular views everywhere and so much to see. Here looking down to Port Vell again.
