Parking car in Barcelona
Are you looking for parking your car in Barcelona?
It’s obvious that parking in the big city like Barcelona can be a problem. As almost every city offers some good parking places on the surrounding of the city, so the best choice is to leave your car outside of the city center and take a public transport. Barcelona has a great public transport system and you can get anywhere without problems and on time.
In Barcelona is the same thing and I am personally recommending you not to come to the city center by car because you will have problems to park it somewhere. However, you can find parking space in the city center, but it can be full or with limited accessibility, or just reserved for the local people.
The first question you should ask yourself is if you really have to come to the city center by car?
If the answer is no, you can always use the public transport or taxi, which also offer good service and not too expensive.
The next question is if you are driving foreign plated car?
If the answer is yes, there you should be more careful because in general foreign plated cars are often targeted for a robbery. In this case, the best way is to find a parking with 24 hours surveillance so you don’t have to be nervous.
Finally, if you really need to use a car in Barcelona, I give you some tips of good parking places where you can leave your car without problems.
Parking at Nord Station (the main Bus central station)
This parking offers a good location very close to the city center and the metro station just few minutes of walk. They also offer rates per day so you can park here and do sightseeing a whole day.
Parking in Glories – next to Les Glories shopping center
This parking is more further from the city center but is surveillance 24hours so you don’t have to be worried.
There are also parking places in the city center, but you must know that the rates per day can be quiet high and you don’t have to find a space.
|TIP: ll If you are thinking to park the car on the street it is not a good idea. Most of the streets in the city center are reserved for the local people and also there are specific areas whit a color where you can park and where not.|
I would not recommend this choice as you can end up with your car towed away.
