Barcellona is the home port for the arrival and departure of many Mediterranean cruises. The five operating terminals, the different wharfs and the diverse installations are in the very centre of the city and have efficient connection with the city itself and the railway stations and the airport.The Port of Barcelona is cofounder and member of the Medcruise association, which works to stimulate and to promote the Mediterranean ports as points of tourist destination. All this turns the Port of Barcelona into a model and a reference to be followed in the tourist cruise sphere.
The Port of Barcelona is the main transport and services infrastructure located in
Catalonia, one of the four motor regions of Europe. Its area of influence stretches
through the south and centre of Europe and North Africa. The Port of Barcelona is the
logistics gate that links markets as far distant as the Far East and Latin America. It is a
port whose continued increase, both in goods and passengers, have placed it in a
leading position among the Mediterranean ports.
This leading position goes back a long way. The first wharves were built in the Middle
Ages, with the Catalan expansion into the Mediterranean. During the 18th and 19th
Centuries, with the bustling trade with the colonies, the Port of Barcelona managed to
establish itself as one of the main ports for overseas trade. It has maintained this
important role to this day: the 426 shipping lines that regularly link it with 400 ports of
the five continents place it firmly as the main Spanish port for regular lines.
With traffic close to 35 million tonnes, more than 1,700,000 containers, 650,000 new
vehicles and 1,900,000 passengers in 2003, the Port of Barcelona is one of the leading
ports of the Mediterranean and Southern Europe.
