    Activities to celebrate the Centenary of the Santa Eulàlia schooner

    On the occasion of the centenary of the Santa Eulàlia schooner, built in 1917 in a shipyard of the Alicante coast, the Barcelona Maritime Museum is planning a commemorative program from March 2018 to February 2019.
    In the Port of Barcelona, the Santa Eulàlia will receive the visit, throughout the year, of boats from all over the world, and the outstanding vessels of the Catalan fleet. They will sail the coast to take part in the most important maritime festivals of the Mediterranean. There will also be dissemination activities, such as a monographic exhibition, talks and other events addressed to all the public. A public festival is planned in June at the Barcelona Maritime Museum, to commemorate the anniversary. In 2019, the Santa Eulàlia festival, co-patroness of the city, will close the centenary celebration.

  • Zurich Marató de Barcelona 2019

    Zurich Marató de Barcelona 2019

    As running becomes increasingly popular with millions of people around the world, the numbers coming to take part in Barcelona's marathon grows each year. It's now the fourth largest marathon in Europe after Berlin, London and Paris, with over 17,000 people signing up. Doubtless part of the appeal is the idea of running a 42.2km route around one of the continent's most aesthetically pleasing cities. The number of globally recognised landmarks passed by participants, such as the Sagrada Família and Camp Nou, as well as noteworthy vistas including the seafront, historic port and Ciutadella Park, make this a one-of-a-kind sporting event.

    But that's not all. The Barcelona marathon is much more, with entertainment for the crowds that includes concerts, traditional Catalan culture and different local drumming groups, a four-kilometre Breakfast Run the day before the race, a Kids Race, and Expo Sports, a fair focused on outdoor sports that has numerous stands from major sporting companies.
