- This Gothic building is almost at the end of the Ramblas, off to the right, and was erected in the Middle Ages to build ships. After construction, the ships would be put into the sea by means of the watercourse that used to run along the Ramblas. Drassanes was built by order of the Crown of Aragón, which, thanks to growing influence in the Mediterranean, found itself in need of more ships. Nowadays the building houses, rather logically, the Maritime Museum.
