Full description
Climb aboard the historic Las Golondrinas pleasure boat for a 90-minute cruise around the harbor and seafront of Barcelona, following a 125-year-old tradition. Las Golondrinas began its adventure in 1888, at the same time as the Barcelona Universal Exhibition, the completion of La Rambla, and the construction of the Columbus Monument.

The boat departs into the open sea before sailing along the coast to the former fishing village of Barceloneta, now one of the city’s most beloved neighborhoods. Continue to the contemporary constructions of the Port Olímpic and Vila Olímpica, built for the 1992 Olympic Games.

Admire the beaches of Nova Icària and Bogatell, and Mar Bella and Nova Mar Bella en route to the Port Fòrum, recognizable by its huge solar plants. Get spectacular views of the Sagrada Familia in the distance, the sea-hugging Hotel Arts, and Mapfre Tower. It is a perfect activity for children and the young at heart, providing a unique opportunity to enjoy the nature and see different views of the city.
  • 1.5-hour boat tour (Colom-Fòrum-Colom) showcasing Barcelona’s seafront, including the harbor, beaches, Olympic Marina and Forum site
