From Montjuïc, looking over the commercial port

25 October. Ascending by Carretera de Montjuïc and taking the path below the walls of Castell de Montjuïc.

The commercial port first moved into the Llobregat Delta in 1966 and there are plans to divert the Llobregat two kilometres further south in order to accommodate its further growth. The maritime ambitions of medieval Barcelona were at first thwarted by the advancing sand of the Llobregat delta which, together with frequent storms, hindered safe navigation and anchorage. The old port was constructed east of Montjuïc.
