On This Day . . .
We reached Barcelona, Spain on April 12, 2017, where we were docked for two days. On day one we took the shuttle to the World Trade Center where we walked to La Ramblas. We walked up the Ramblas and then turned left into the Gothic Quarter and went to El Dra de Sant Jordi for a Tapas lunch. After lunch we proceeded to the Cathedral, and then back to La Ramblas. On La Ramblas is the famous St. Joseph Market, a large public market that dates back to 1217. As always the market is very crowded and busy. We then returned to the ship. On day two we decide to walk across the Rambla de Mar, a new pedestrian bridge built before Barcelona hosted the Olympics, which connects the main city with Port Vell. Here we took a boat ride that toured the harbor and the beach area.
