Barcelona Guide

The Spanish city of Barcelona is located in the autonomous region of Catalonia and is Spain's second largest city after Madrid. Barcelona is one of the most visited cities in the world and lies on the coast between the mouths of the River Llobregat and River Besos. It is also bordered to the west by the Serra de Collserola mountain range. There are many things to do and see in Barcelona including the Barri Gotic (the Gothic Quarter) where many medieval buildings can be found. The city's best known landmark is the still unfinished church of the Sagrada Familia which has been under construction since 1882. In addition to its buoyant tourist industry, the city is also a popular destination for many trade fairs and exhibitions and is also a major centre for sport, fashion, science and the arts.

Barcelona's port has three terminals and is a popular departure port for ferries to Mallorca, Genoa, Ibiza and Morocco (Tangier Med). The port also accommodates many cruise ships sailing the Mediterranean Sea. The port's piers used by ferries are located quite close to the city centre.

Formentera Guide

The Spanish island of Formentera is one of the Balearic Islands and is roughly 20 km long and lies around 6 km to the south of the island of Ibiza. The island is known as the last Mediterranean paradise because it is successfully been able to provide a good mix of environmental protection along with tourism. The island is relatively inaccessible as the only way to get to it is by boat from Ibiza which makes the island a great place to visit if peace and tranquillity is what you are after. Visitors to the island enjoy cycling or swimming off one of the island's 20 km of beaches. The Posidonea Prairie that surrounds the island acts as a natural water treatment plant that cleans the water and makes Formentera different from the rest of the Mediterranean. The sea off the coast of the island is an underwater jungle and has been declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

The crossing time by ferry to Ibiza is around 30 minutes.
