Barcelona, a photo a day

Port Vell Marina

Amongst the many urban regeneration plans the municipality here had to welcome the 1992 Olympics was the transformation of the Port Vell, or Old Port. Once an industrial waste site, full of rusting machines, ruined warehouses, chemicals all over the place, it is now one of the places you go on a weekend. Several cinemas, restaurant, the Maremagnum shopping mall, one of the biggest aquariums in Europe. All this on an purpose built artificial island. And, of course, the Marina. More about it here.

  9. Hi,

    Justwanted to say how much I liked your photo. The boats are so clear and the water so blue. It's really nice and very well done.

  10. Revitalization of the area. Sounds like a big improvement. Very nice photo too. This would be a great “Watery Wednesday” shot.
