Western Med Highlights

Barcelona

Cruise ships arrive in Barcelona at one of the berths beyond the famous thoroughfare, Las Ramblas. The port provides the low-cost Blue Bus shuttle transfer into the city, where there are world-class museums dedicated to football, history, Picasso, Miro and Gaudi. The skyline of Barcelona is dominated by Gaudi's architecture - the magnificent Sagrada Familia Cathedral, the apartment block of Casa Mila, and at ground level, Parc Guell.

Malaga

Malaga cruise port is situated at the end of the town's promenade. Sitting on a sweeping Andalucian bay, Malaga has long been popular as a beach resort, and has plenty of attractions for visitors. Walk its wide palm-shaded boulevards, narrow streets and squares and discover the Museo Picasso which honours one of Malaga's most famous sons, Alcazaba Fortress and a nearby Roman amphitheatre, and an impressive cathedral.
