Port Vell the old port area of Barcelona was rejuvenated during the construction work for the 1992 Olympics.
The old warehouses, railway depots, silos and factories were demolished making way for open spaces, marina and visitor attractions such as the Aquarium. A wooden board walk with a swing bridge connects the La Rambla to Port Vell.
The aerial tramway glides silently over the waterway.
The tramway was built for the 1929 Barcelona World Fair.
