As in all big cities, parking in Barcelona is not an easy task!
If you come to Barcelona by car, whether for a few days, weeks or months, here is some information to keep in mind.
Barcelona, where to park?
In Barcelona, most spaces to park on the street are paid, so it is important to bear in mind that:
Residents Zone (in white): Marked and delimited on the asphalt, this space is reserved for residents of the neighborhood with a badge. In no case can you park if you are not an accredited resident.
Blue area (in blue): Delimited in blue, it is a space for everyone to pay. You need to get a ticket that allows a maximum of 4 hours in a row, after which you have to get another ticket again. It is paid from Monday to Friday from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. and from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. and in some areas even on Saturdays, Sundays and holidays.
However, there are some free options such as:
The bus lane: In the wide streets with bus lanes such as Muntaner, Balmes, Ronda General Miter, you can park during the weekends and in some even during the week but with a certain schedule. In any case, there must be a sign indicating if parking is allowed and at what times.
Zones and areas of Barcelona: There are areas of Barcelona located on the outskirts, where it is possible to park for free. Although it is true that it has to be left in a safe place and that it is not too far from a metro or bus station, in order to move around the city.
The University Zone: Located at the entrance to Barcelona, on Avinguda Diagonal, it is an excellent option as it has several public transport options nearby. Although it can be somewhat more complicated to park during school months since university students occupy most of the spaces.
It is a very good option if you rent a seasonal apartment in Sata Park Güell Area, as it has a direct connection to the Line 3 metro.
The Olympic Village and Llacuna Park: In some streets, the furthest from the beach, you can find some free parking areas although they are highly sought after and it can cost a bit to park at first.
The best option if you stay in the Sata Olimpic Village Area apartments for months in Barcelona.
Montjuïc: In the Montjuic area, the MNAC (National Art Museum of Catalonia) has a large free car park, it is also possible to park in the streets near the Stadium. Although it is easy to park, the connection by public transport is somewhat more complex.
Vall d’Hebrón and Guinardó: Two neighborhoods located in the highest area of Barcelona, although they are areas that are somewhat further away and difficult to access, they have many possibilities for parking.
Connection by bus v21 with the monthly apartments Sata Sagrada Familia Area.
If none of these options convinces you, at Sata Apartments we can offer you parking, you just have to ask us for availability and special prices.
