Excellent opportunity to visit Barcelona by public transport, both by bus and metro, free of charge, from the airport to the city and even within. Of the 25 museums we visited 20.

It was great it allowed us to skip lines and the guide helped tell us which subway station was closest. Will definitely do this on our next trip

Excellent system for visiting the city ... the cost of the card is ideal for saving!
