Barcelona, Spain

Barcelona Beach/Waterfront

Barcelona’s waterfront was significantly redeveloped for the 1992 Olympics and is now one of the city’s highlights. There is terrific running right along the water, easily accessible from many downtown hotels and the convention center. The W hotel, near the start of the run, is one of the newer and fancier hotels in the city. The main run along the water is about 3 miles one way along a paved path. It’s also possible to run on the beach (not 100% seamless). Landmarks along the way, from west to east include the stairs from the W to the Plaça de la Rosa del Vents, sculptures along the beach in the Barceloneta fishing neighborhood, Golden Fish and the Torre Mafre en Hotel Arts, and the modern harbor of Port Olimpica
