If we turn to the Gothic quarter can not pass up the chance to go for the Palau de la Musica Catalana, a modernist building very representative and interesting. Following our bike path, go down Via Laietana and came to the Cathedral. From this point, we are on the Gothic up to the Plaza Reial, where you can enjoy historic streets move you to another era. In the Gothic Quarter and a tribute we can give to stop for sustenance at one of the many bars in the neighborhood.

From here, cross the Ramblas and going straight to the MACBA (Museum of Contemporary Art in Barcelona). We are in the heart of the Raval, from there we can take a stroll through the neighborhood, up to the Rambla del Raval and then down to Columbus.

Here begins the sea route from a rail that runs throughout the ride. You can reach the beach, harbor, or the Olympic Village and stop and rest, enjoy the views or replace forces throughout the ride.
