O is for Olympic Port Barcelona

Olympic port, built for the 1992 Olympics

This is a postcard I like because I couldn't possibly get this view of the Barcelona Olympic Port with my digital camera. (No, I do not have the copyright... thank you, owner, for letting me borrow it! )

This area was fully regenerated before the 1992 Olympic games. At the time it was essentially a piece of land with warehouses, rail lines and industries which converted into a large coastline park with appartments. These were originally used to house the athletes, and afterwards sold or rented to the locals. It is nowadays a very modern area with many busy bars and nice restaurants along the port.
