How to get to Moll de la Fusta

Moll de Bosch i Alsina, is more popularly known as Moll de la Fusta, is in Barcelona's Port Vell (old port) harbour. Fusta means "wood" in the Catalan language and no prizes for guessing that the Moll de la Fusta got its name from the warehouses that stowed wood.

The Moll de la Fusta runs parallel with the street 'Passeig de Colom.' The maritime museum schooner Santa Eulalia is moored here and open to the public. This wharf is very popular for harbour walks and often used for events and fairs. The Moll de la Fusta is on the border of Barcelona's gothic area  and the Barceloneta area of old city.

Attractions near Moll de la Fusta include Port Vell marina,  MMB Maritime Museum,  Basilica of Our Lady of Mercy,  Barcelona Aquarium, the Maremagnum shopping mall, the Columbus monument, the Golondrinas harbour boats, the Catalunya History Museum and the Gothic area of Barcelona
