Barcelona to Alcudia Ferry Guide
The Spanish city of Barcelona is located in the autonomous region of Catalonia and is Spain's second largest city after Madrid. Barcelona is one of the most visited cities in the world and lies on the coast between the mouths of the River Llobregat and River Besos. It is also bordered to the west by the Serra de Collserola mountain range. There are many things to do and see in Barcelona including the Barri Gotic (the Gothic Quarter) where many medieval buildings can be found. The city's best known landmark is the still unfinished church of the Sagrada Familia which has been under construction since 1882. In addition to its buoyant tourist industry, the city is also a popular destination for many trade fairs and exhibitions and is also a major centre for sport, fashion, science and the arts.
Barcelona's port has three terminals and is a popular departure port for ferries to Mallorca, Genoa, Ibiza and Morocco (Tangier Med). The port also accommodates many cruise ships sailing the Mediterranean Sea. The port's piers used by ferries are located quite close to the city centre.

To the north of the town is a 19th century bull ring and in the old town on Sundays and Tuesdays is a market which is always a hive of activity. Located within the town's walls visitors will find a number of lovely restaurants, cafes and bars, mainly located around the marina.
Ferry services departing from the town's port travel to Barcelona, Denia and Valencia. Crossing times to these destinations can take up to 7 hours by conventional ferry which is reduced to around 3 hours if a fast ferry is taken.
