The Olympic port of Barcelona

In 1992, with the Olympic Games, Barcelona opened up to the sea and brought about urban upheaval. The result was a success. The old industrial land was transformed and a new district emerged: the Olympic Village, which has now become the Olympic Port District.

A port that invites movement, day and night: water sports, discos, restaurants, hotels, bars. It is always in effervescence.

 

>>> From 2023 to 2024 the port will be transformed architecturally once again! All the restaurants in the marina will be closed to reopen in the summer of 2024 for the America's Cup, see below.

 

How to get to the Olympic Port

Barcelona's Olympic Port is located in the Vila Olímpica del Poblenou district. It can be reached via the Carrer de la Marina directly from the Sagrada Familia. Two beautiful beaches surround it: "Platja del Somorrostro" and the "Platja de la Nova Icària" and you are only 10 minutes walk from the Barceloneta.

 

Address: Carrer de la Marina, 17 , 08005 Barcelona, Spain.

The Port Olympic area is easily accessible by public transport:

Metro: Line 4 (Yellow), Ciutadella/Vila Olímpica station

Bus: Lines 36, 45, 59, 71, 92, H16, V21

Hop-on hop-off Bus: The red line takes you to the Olympic Port stop.

Barcelona's Olympic port: a completely new district

The Olympic Port Quarter was built for the 1992 Olympic Games, which were a major event for Barcelona and led to a major urban transformation. Prior to this, the area was a former industrial district in decline. The construction of the Olympic Village, the sports facilities and the marina gave birth to this new district, which has since become an emblematic place of the city.

The architecture of Barcelona's Olympic Port was created by a group of Spanish architects and urban planners, including Oriol Bohigas, Josep Martorell, David Mackay, Albert Puigdomènech, and Jordi Henrich. They designed a modern and dynamic space with sailing facilities, public spaces, beaches, restaurants and bars.

 

The great architect Frank Gehry also left his mark on the port with the giant metal sculpture of a fish at the foot of one of the two towers of the port, the Hotel Arts tower. This monumental sculpture has also become one of the symbols of the city.

A new Olympic port in 2024

On the occasion of the 2024 America's Cup, a new marina will see the light of day with a brand new Olympic Port with a purified and luminous architecture, even more turned towards the sea and more ecological. On the agenda: a 24,000 square metre space, 11 restaurants, gourmet areas, a new Moll de Gregal with a great design.

Barcelona is definitely undergoing a radical urban transformation.

staying in Port Olimpic marina

Although its a nice enough marina and not too far from town, I wouldn't recommend staying in the marina on a boat (as we did for 4 nights). The marina is surrounded by clubs and bars which play loud music until the early hours, (on Saturday night/Sunday morning the music and heavy beat of the base stopped at 6.30am).

So if you enjoy your sleep - this isn't the place for you. If sleep isn't an issue for you, then you'll probably enjoy the marina.

Hello Susan, The green tourist bus line is no longer in service and will not be next April. However, the red line now passes through the north of the city, where the green line used to run. Enjoy your visit!

Will the green line be running on April 1? If not, is there a price reduction due to this reduced service?

Dla mnie Barcelona to miasto Hiszpanii i wiele ciekawych zabytków oraz dużo turystów jest w nim tak na prawdę i myślę że jeszcze bym chciał tam polecieć bo chcę zwiedzić muzeum FC Barcelony i przejechać się kolejką linową jaka to jest atrakcja dla mnie najbardziej w tym ale wiem że dużo zwiedziłem z Adamem tych właśnie miejsc chociaż stałem się dobrym podróżnikiem ale radość we mnie jest w tym to jest najważniejsze w moim życiu codziennym Ja z Adamem stworzyłem najlepszą grupę przyjaciół w tej Hiszpanii tam na plaży Barceloneta skradłem całusy pięknym dziewczynom bo mi się podobają jak się legną do mnie takie osoby młode i to właśnie potrzebują dziewczyny tego mojego ciepła mojego ciała
