The Navy Shipyards

Las Drassanes are shipyards of civil Gothic style, they were built between the 13th and 14th centuries where merchant and war ships of different draught and length were built with high quality standards, making them gain fame all around the Mediterranean Sea.
Their impeccable stone and wooden structure helped them withstand the test of times, thus surviving the earthquakes, which beat down on Barcelona in 1373 and 1428, and the Civil War bombings. Within the architectural ensemble, few standing remains of the city’s ancient wall are preserved. Today they are the venue for the Maritime Museum where, among others, a replica of the first submarine, the Ictíneo by Narcis Monturiol, is exhibited.
The Reials Drassanes de Barcelona, located at the end of Rambla, is the largest and best preserved medieval shipyards in Europe and they were declared as listed building in 1976.
