Minimize Port of Barcelona

The Port of Barcelona in Spain can be seen in this Flock 1 image, acquired on 25 August 2015.

Located on the Mediterranean coast of Spain, this port is not only one of Spain's largest, but also Europe's. The port is essential to Barcelona's tourism industry, hosting scores of cruise ships, passenger ferries and private yachts. It's also a hub for container shipping, servicing food, liquid bulk, and consumer goods cargo ships.

In the image the Llobregat River can be seen flowing towards the Mediterranean Sea. The river delta was recently diverted to enable the expansion of the port, increasing its size to double what it had previously been.
