"Neighbourhoods, Nova Caria & Port Olimpic" Barcelona Travelogue by Martin_S.

Barcelona Travel Guide: 9,872 reviews and 23,198 photos

Found this colorful guy in the park just across the street from the Port Olimpic area and asked if I could take his photo with the VT flag...
I took his silence as a "YES"
We walked along the waterfront to Port Olimpic/Nova Caria from the Barri Gotic area.

A great big beached whale adorns the seashore at Port Olimpic where the 1992 Olympic Games athletes were housed.

The Port Olimpic area is today host to bars, clubs, hotels, beaches and even a casino. You can learn more of what there is to see and do in the Port Olimpic area at these sites.

This view shows the inner construction of the "golden fish" of Port Olimpic with the two athletes towers in the background.
