The Barcelona Maritime Museum is running a varied program of leisure activities for all the family, aimed at arousing the curiosity, respect and appreciation for maritime culture.
This exhibition takes us back to the period between the 18th and 20th centuries to explore the commercial, experiential and technological revolution that Catalonia went through during that time. From the development of commerce throughout the Mediterranean to expanding into transoceanic trade, from sailing ships to steam power, this voyage relates how Catalan navigation opened itself up to new worlds both economically and socially.
Prepare to set sail. Well, to at least imagine yourself setting sail on one of the magnificent vessels on display at this year's Barcelona Boat Show. This will be the 58th edition for this event that sees the city's Port Vell fill up with the latest yachts, speedboats and catamarans for potential buyers to peruse, and the interested to ogle.
All the principal makers of sporting and leisure boats are represented, with hundreds of gleaming crafts on show, alongside numerous stands where you can try the latest technological advances in the sector along with the newest must-have accessories and equipment. You can also sample a variety of water sports, including paddle surf, kayak and canoeing, all at the Fun Beach area.
In order to appreciate the importance of the sea as a driving force in the history of Barcelona, the Museum of the History of the City (MUHBA) is putting on a double exhibition. On the one hand, the Saló del Tinell is showing “The Medieval Metamorphosis, 13th-15th centuries” and, as a counterpoint, in the Chapel of Santa Àgata, “The conquest of the coastline, from the 20th to the 21st century”. The first one reflects on how the municipality of Barcelona emerged thanks to the generation of resources and social diversification as well as the economic and sociopolitical model that descended into crisis in the second half of the 15th century. The second exhibition explores the opening up of Barcelona to the sea at the end of both the 19th and 20th centuries.
The streets of the Barceloneta in Ciutat Vella district are arranged like corridors running parallel and perpendicular to the Port de Barcelona, and draw us into a world of modest buildings, with balconies displaying clothes hanging out to dry and small ground-floor restaurants and tapas bars, filled with chatter and noise, and permeated by the constant smell of the sea.
The old harbour, Barcelona's Port Vell, which stretches from the Columbus Monument to the Barceloneta, offers endless possibilities to enjoy your leisure time, such as L'Aquàrium or Maremàgnum, amongst others. Following a long historic process, the Port Vell, with its landmark buildings and monuments, now gleams like one of the most valuable pearls on the Mediterranean coast.
As you explore the narrow streets of the old Barceloneta neighbourhood in Ciutat Vella, you'll discover the charm and atmosphere of a working-class district, which attracts many tourists to its beaches, fine restaurants and bars.
Nowhere else in Barcelona better encapsulates post-modernity than Diagonal Mar and the Forum in the Sant Martí district. Set out along the final stretch of the Avinguda Diagonal, this neighbourhood originated from the major redevelopment of the industrial district of Poblenou and merges, in its final section, with the Forum.
One of Barcelona's most recently expanded neighbourhoods and a benchmark for modernity.
Barcelona is synonymous with the Mediterranean and a time-honoured seafaring tradition dating back to Roman times. Barcelona has lived on the sea and for the sea.
