Port Olímpic (Harbour)
The Port Olímpic ("Olympic Port" in English) went through a major urban transformation triggered by the 1992 Olympic games that took place in the area, with the construction of the port itself and the regeneration of the entire surrounding coast.
The coastal renovation served for the sailing competitions and the housing and buildings in the area were used to house atheletes and sportsmen. Today the legacy of the games is reflected in this modern residential district on the waterfront, with pristine beaches for swimming and public use. The Marina has become the centre of a large area for entertainment and dining, a place where you can practice water-sports or simple go for a stroll along the beach. At the foot of one of the two towers that govern access to Port Olímpic, is the Casino de Barcelona.
