My wife really enjoyed the cable car ride. The line went fast and smoothly. We purchased the round trip tickets. The gardens were blooming with some really interesting flowers.

When are are anywhere near the water in Barcelona you can see the Transborador going back and forth over the harbor. It is just as stunning when you are in it as you would imagine it to be. Be prepared to wait in line for...More

This attraction offers a nice view of the harbor and city. Only drawback was a long q getting on at the harbour end (60 minutes). There was no q at the other end!

I don't know if China Myeville has been effectively inspired by these cable line towers, but from a distance they looked precisely like Perdido Street station to me. What an architectural feat! Great fun to (sort of) step inside the famous novel! A truly vintage...More

Originally a fisherman’s quarter, this quaint area
can’t escape its small village feel: laundry hanging
over the narrow streets, old ladies clamoring at each
other from their balconies and elder gentlemen playing
games on short wooden benches gossiping the day away,
Barceloneta could double as a film set. Artists line
the boardwalk displaying their magnificently detailed
sand structures making this the most visited beach in

I agree with both of the above comments. There was quite a queue when we went in October. Trip is short but wonderful views.
