Barcelona Card

Transport, Free Visits, Discounts and Much More!

The popular Barcelona Card is a must for visitors to the Catalan capital and booking in advance will save you lots of headaches!

The travel card's main purpose is to provide free travel on the Barcelona public transport network, including the metro, buses, local trains and trams and with two, three, four and five-day passes available, it really is a great way to get the best out of your time in the Catalan capital.

What's more you also get more than €300 worth of discounts and free offers at museums, cultural venues, leisure facilities, night-clubs, shops, restaurants and entertainments and other services and the list of offers is getting longer all the time.

The Barcelona Card comes with a special tourist guide with recommendations on what to visit, where to eat and drink and how to take advantage of all the special offers.

The Barcelona City Card has become such a great deal because local businesses are keen to promote themselves to foreign tourists meaning that everybody wins.

Obviously, the best way for you and your family to take advantage of this excellent deal is to book your Barcelona Card before your holiday begins!

Discounts and Free Offers

As new Discounts and Free Offers are continually being added to the Barcelona Travel Card, it's not practical to list them all.

However, here are few amongst over 50 that caught my eye.

After a Free Boat Trip around the harbour on Las Golondrinas, you can climb up to the top of the Columbus Statue - El Mirador del Colom - at the bottom of The Ramblas without paying.

You get free entry to some of the best Barcelona Museums - the Museu de la Historia de la Ciutat, the Museu del Modernisme Català, Museu Nacional d'Art de Catalunya-MNAC and the Monastery of Pedralbes are all must do visits.

You can make big savings when you visit the FC Barcelona Museum (5% Off), the Picasso Museum (20% Off), the Fundació Miró (20% Off) and the Sagrada Familia Museum (2 Euro Off), which you would probably be doing anyway.
