El Port de Barcelona

The "MUSEU MARÍTIM DE BARCELONA" is housed in the old Barcelona Royal Shipyard. The shipyard itself is a series of galley "sheds" built of stone in the 16th Century. The buildings were added to and modified over many centuries from 1285 until 1749. The shipyard built galleys for the Aragonese Armada. 

The following photos are of an impressive diorama of the Port de Barcelona in the 14th Century.
