As we leave the seduction of La Boqueria Market we head back into a steadily bustling Las Ramblas and take a right which leads us straight toward the sea.

Along the way you are presented with the contrast of many modern cities, the history of the Columbus Monument adorned with sculptures and statues below the towering figure of the great explorer eternally looking out to sea.

Then we are presented with the marina and shopping/dining complex adding a lavish and modern ingredient to the mix; from there you can walk along the many beaches and take in the warm sea air which compliments the sheer diversity of Barcelona.
