The ‘Golondrinas’ (meaning ‘swallows’) are a nautical attraction and first began operating in 1888, for the Universal Exhibition held in Barcelona that year.
The boats are moored at the original location, the port, opposite the monument to Christopher Columbus.
Two different routes are offered: one lasts 35 minutes and takes you around the port itself; the other route lasts 1hr 35mins and goes from the Columbus monument to Port Forum and back again.
