Planning Your Visit

  • Is it worth it?

    Although the Barcelona Card offers discounts on a variety of attractions, the free admissions it offers are mostly limited to museums. If you plan on immersing yourself in art and history, then it could save you loads. If not, check out its discounts on everything from tours to tastings to flamenco shows, and do the math. It works as a travelcard across all public transport networks too, but the Hola BCN card might be more suitable for your visit.

  • What is a Hola BCN card?

    If you're planning on seeing a lot of Barcelona but staying off the beaten track, then consider buying a Hola BCN card instead. For a one-off fee, you'll receive unlimited travel across all metro lines, buses, trams, and suburban trains, without paying for attractions you don't plan to visit!

This card is great if you have a strict schedule ad stick to it. In my case, didn't work out , because I used the taxis a lot. I was planning to visit at least two places a day, but in Barcelona it imposible, why? There is so many things to see and enjoy besides de 25 places that this card offers. I got the 5 days one. My discipline wasn't to follow my original plan fail. If I was having lunch in a great patio, enjoying the beautiful climate great food and sangria, I wasn't going to get up and go somewhere else. But I strongly recommend to buy the transport and museums cards. BARCELONA is beautiful, you need at least two weeks there to really see the most iconic places. I must add, that people from there are very polite.

Unfortunately, quick access was not guaranteed at all museums. With many you had to queue for the ticket anyway. In any case, public transport paid off.

It was relatively easy to find the voucher exchange point. It is in the tourist information within the terminal 1 of the airport

The day pass works perfectly. The cardboard card (with magnetic stripe) is a bit sensitive to kinks, so keep it flat somewhere.

It worked a lot, I managed to visit the city using public transport
