Barcelona's ferry port is one of the largest and most important in the Mediterranean, with many ferries departing every day as well as regular cruise ship arrivals. The ports is located right in the heart of the city near Las Ramblas and many of the favourite tourist destinations.
A truly global location, Barcelona is the 2nd largest city in Spain and capital of Catalonia. It is located in the "comarca" of Barcelonès, along the Mediterranean coast. Barcelona is an economic, financial and cultural centre, and a destination famous for its electric nightlife, shopping, beaches, cuisine, football and parks. Thanks to its wonderful climate and these many cultural offerings, Barcelona is perennially one of the most popular destinations in Europe.
Barcelona is also rightly renowned for its unique contemporary architecture and the iconic works of the architect Antoni Gaudí. His most famous work is the huge (yet unfinished) temple of the Sagrada Família, billed for completion in 2026. Other examples of his work are the Palau Güell, the Park Güell, the Casa Milà (La Pedrera) and the Casa Batlló. Barcelona is home to many beautiful parks and beaches, an array of museums, galleries and music venues and countless restaurants, as well as Las Ramblas, the most lively street in the city and the many fascinating side streets leading from it.
The Mahon ferry port is situated on the eastern coast of Menorca. Mahon ferry port is mostly used for passenger traffic and cruise ship stopovers.
Mahon (officially called Maó, the Catalan name for the town) is the capital city of the Balearic Island of Minorca. Mahon boasts one of the deepest natural ports in the world and offers fantastic sights for lovers of nature. The island has almost as many beaches as Majorca and Ibiza combined, making it an ideal place for a holiday. One of Mahon's most beautiful buildings is the Gobierno Militar (Military Governor's House), which was built in the 18th century and is still used by the Spanish Army. The ancient town of Ciutadella (which has it's own ferry port) is also definitely worth a visit, as it is a very scenic place full of winding streets by the Mediterranean.
09 Apr 2019OK but has been better.
The crossing should have been underway by 10pm and the check in assistant said we would commence boarding at 9pm to 9.30pm but boarding did not begin until 10.15pm. After a days travelling this felt like a long wait. We have done this crossing quite a few times and always have a cabin which is generally well appointed, bottles of water, towelling robes, slippers, comfort blankets and so on but this time although the beds were clean and comfortable there were none of these touches. However, the ferry got us to our destination quickly and quietly which is after all the main thing. I cannot comment on the quality of the onboard catering as we did not sample it but I saw quite a few people going towards the restaurant area so I assume the food was palatable at the least.
