For the 1992 Olympic Games, the entire waterfront area and the promenade all the way up to the fishing district, Barceloneta, were completely redesigned. The boats known as “Golondrines” set off on their tours around the harbor from the Moll de les Drassanes near the Monument a Colom, from the top of which you can see the whole coastline. The Rambla de Mar footbridge takes you to the Maremàgnum on the Moll d’Espanya jetty – a shopping and leisure center incorporating fashionable bars, tempting gaming rooms, wonderful shops and an IMAX cinema to take you to faraway worlds.

It is also home to the Aquarium, with an 260-foot Plexiglas tunnel where you can come face to face with moray eels and tiger sharks. The Aquarium also has 21 huge tanks and more than 4,000 different species of animals and plants, making it the largest artificial underwater world in Europe. Accompanied by classical music, the visitor can learn about marine life in an entertaining way.
