The Golondrinas of Barcelona made their debut among the maritime attractions of the port of Barcelona in 1888 on the occasion of the World's Fair; they are located in the old port at the foot of Christopher Columbus' watchtower (a monument that was also completed at the same time).
Catamarans, or monohulls, the Golondrinas offer two options of sea trips to discover the main features of the port and the city's beaches for a duration of 40 minutes or an hour and a half.
Lolita, Encarnacion, or Maria del Carmen, are the 3 traditional Golondrinas that offer a very pleasant stroll in the port of Barcelona..From Columbus' viewpoint to the ancient lighthouse, from the Maremagnum to the merchant port and Barcelona's impressive cruise port, the 40-minute itinerary offers exceptional views of the Montjuic mountain from the sea.
Always so many exceptional views, but this time, direction the beaches.
The one and a half hour itinerary leaves the Port Vell to reach the Olympic port along the sea passage to reach the Forum.
Aboard Trimar, Omnibus, or Antina-G, discover all the buildings and monuments along the coast.
