Port Vell, the beautiful harbour at the foot of La Rambla, is a hub for the people of Barcelona and tourists alike. The 1992 Olympics ensured the old warehouses and wharves were rejuvenated into lively boulevards of entertainment, artworks and cafes; a place where the vibrant local communities congregate and always seem to celebrate life. They are a joyous people and it's infectious.
I love the way there is no fear or hesitation amongst European
cities to mix the outrageously modern with the old and revered.
