Cruises

Barcelona enjoys an excellent location by the sea and its dynamic, busy port has become the gateway to the city for many of its visitors. 

As Europe’s leading cruise port, and largest Mediterranean turnaround port, Barcelona is the perfect example of the way cruise facilities can integrate into the city, with its broad avenues, business and shopping hubs, and cultural, recreational and sporting facilities.

Barcelona has seven cruise terminals that receive three million passengers every year. Some of them choose the city as the first or final destination on their cruise, while others visit the city for a few hours.  

They can all enjoy the wide variety of tours and experiences available. Barcelona offers a unique lifestyle, artistic and architectural heritage, a vibrant cultural scene, great food, shopping and sporting events. Just a short distance away you can enjoy attractions, such as Montserrat Monastery, and sample Designation of Origin wines at local wineries.

At Turisme de Barcelona we can advise you how to attract cruise passengers. Our team is also on hand to let cruise companies know about new visitor attractions and activities that will help them widen their knowledge of Barcelona and ensure tourist flow is evenly distributed across the city, thereby improving mobility.
