Head down Las Rambles, towards the sea, and you eventually encounter the very tall monument dedicated to Columbus. Go past the Columbus monument, continuing to the sea and slightly to the left (just follow the other pedestrians), to the Rambla de Mar.

Bibliography for Barcelona Pages


Above photo - The Rambla de Mar, a footbridge between the mainland of Barcelona and harbor's shopping and leisure complex.
For the 1992 Olympics, Barcelona’s entire sea front was renovated. Walk across the Rambla de Mar and you will find a modern shopping and leisure complex known as Maremągmun. After visiting the entertainment centers (which include an Imax theater) and the shopping areas, one can stroll around the harbor, enjoying the art works and the harbor views..
Photo above: Interesting landscaping on the harbor seafront. A corner of the Maremągmun is also in the photograph.

Along the harbor, one can stroll past leisure boats and commercial ships.


This replica of Ictineo II was built in 1992, constructed out of wood like the original submarine built in 1862 by Narcus Monturiol i Estarriol.
