The Maritime Museum offers itineraries on traditional boats to get to know Barcelona and its port better.
If you like sailing, this can be a unique experience. On Saturdays during October, November and December, the Maritime Museum of Barcelona has organised the maritime itineraries called ‘navigations’, boat routes that will bring you closer to the history of the city of Barcelona and its port from a different perspective. On Saturdays at 10 a.m. you can go on board the pailebote Santa Eulàlia, a centenary sailing boat that will take you along the coast of Barcelona and where you can discover what sailing is like with the crew. This route, ‘Barcelona from the sea’, allows you to see the Port Vell, the exit from the port to the open sea, the Barceloneta seafaring district, the Vila Olímpica district and the Forum.
If you prefer to learn more about the history of the Port of Barcelona, you can opt for the 'Port of Barcelona: past, present and future' route, a two-hour trip aboard a traditional boat to discover what the Port Vell used to be like, how it has changed and how it has become the gateway for goods from southern Europe. This itinerary takes place on Saturdays at 11 a.m.
Tickets for the sailing trips cost 12 and 15 euros respectively and you can buy them here. Due to the current situation, places are very limited, so careful not to lose your chance!
