The Maritime Museum is located in a restored building at the Royal Dockyards. This is the largest shipbuilding warehouse that’s been preserved in BCN, and of great historical importance. The museum displays the maritime heritage of Spain, one of the richest in the Mediterranean.
The bays of the Drassanes are delimited by slender columns and a large central courtyard where about thirty galleys were stored in the winter. The work began on the Drassanes in the 14th century in the reign of Peter the Great, and the two western towers, still in perfect condition, date from that periord. Despite the passing of time, the basic structure of this magnificent gothic building has preserved its original appearance.
In summer, there is a lovely terrace outside to enjoy a refreshing drink.
