Maritime Museum BarcelonaMy rating: 4 stars+ Interesting for lovers of seafaring. The cost-benefit ratio is excellent, and you're immediately surprised by the gallery in the great hall! There are changing exhibitions as well.
- Part of the collection was closed during my visit due to renovation work.
Note: A visit to the sailing ship “Santa Eulalia” at the harbor is included in the price of admission!

Maritime trade has always been important for Barcelona, especially during medieval times, when Catalan rule reached all the way to Greece. Here you can take a closer look at the long tradition of Barcelonian seafaring. The large hall is especially impressive – it houses a replica of the galley known as the “Real”, which last sailed in 1571. It will take your breath away! This historic galley was involved in one of the most important battles on the Mediterranean Sea – as the flagship. Afterwards, you can take a rest in the idyllic courtyard, and later continue onwards to the port and go see the Santa Eulalia. This sail ship from 1918 is anchored here.
