Traffic Information back to top

We have desks at both terminals of the airport and one at Sants Station, all are clearly signposted in the arrivals areas. The Barcelona Centre/Eixample branch is on bus routes A1, L94 and L95 while the Diagonal Mar/Hilton branch is located in the Hilton Hotel lobby. This is near the El Maresme/Forum Station on Metro Line 4. Barcelona Paral.lel-Port is reached by several bus routes and is near the Paral.lel station of Metro Line 2. Our Rambla branch is easy to spot at the junction of Rambla Catalunya and Carrer Valencia.

Barcelona is a large city with many narrow streets and complicated road systems. As a popular year-round destination and a city with large residential and working populations, Barcelona also suffers from congested streets. A Sat Nav certainly makes navigating the city less stressful. Children are not allowed to travel in the front seats of cars in Spain.

There are nearly fifty multistorey car parks in Barcelona which become increasingly expensive as you get nearer the city centre. Visitors are advised not to park on the streets unless it is clearly indicated as a meter parking zone. Parking regulations are strictly enforced and illegally parked vehicles are quickly towed away.

The attractions of Barcelona span several districts from the port areas to the modernistic architecture of Eixample, the medieval buildings in the Old City or the hilly Montju´c area with its stunning views. A car rental in Barcelona is the perfect way to get a feel for these distinct areas. Another way to get a panoramic view is by taking a ride on the historic Harbour Cable Car that connects Barceloneta with Montju´c. Barcelona's history stretches back to the days of Ancient Rome. This can be explored at the Temple of Augustus or in the town's many museums. And, of course, time must be found for a day on Barcelona's beautiful beaches and an evening stroll down the tree-lined Las Ramblas.

See the Famous Catalan Art Nouveau

The spectacular La Sagrada Familia, started in 1882, is the work of Antoni Gaudi. This building is unique in the way nature was used to inspire its architecture and for the fact that although consecrated in 2010 the basilica is still far from complete. La Sagrada Familia is not the only Gaudi work to be enjoyed in the city. The Casa Batllˇ fuses ceramics, stone and forged iron in a fantastical Art Nouveau way while the undulating La Pedrera is one of the most imaginative houses in the history of design. Many other buildings and parks around the city bear the Gaudi influence including the strange iron dragon gate at the Finca GŘell.
