After a brief stop, we can continue to one of the mountain’s scenic overlooks from where you can admire the whole city and the port facilities.
On the way to the city center, we will pass nearby the emblematic Columbus monument, the amusement area of the Maremagnum, the fishermen’s district of the Barceloneta and the Olympic Village and its small marina, one of Barcelona’s newest districts.
Our next destination will be the famous unfinished work of Antoni Gaudí, the Expiatory Temple of the Sagrada Família, the most representative monument of Barcelona, which we will see from the outside.
