POSTCROSSING FRIEND | POSTCARD SENT FROM SPAIN
Akubi, a friend in HK, sent me this panoramic view of Port Vell during his brief stay in Spain. He was in Europe for a few weeks for his friend's wedding in South of France.
Port Vell, literally in English 'Old Harbour', is a waterfront harbour in Barcelona, Catalonia, Spain, and part of the Port of Barcelona. It was built as part of an urban renewal program prior to the 1992 Barcelona Olympics.
It is now a focal point of the city and tourist attraction. The Marina Port Vell, located in the heart of the cosmopolitan city of Barcelona - recently voted 'the world's top beach city' in 2011 by National Geographic - and - voted "the second best place to visit in the world" by U.S. News Travel.
