Connect the GPS of your car or mobile phone, and let yourself go. If by chance you do not have it or if for some reason you do not want to activate it, or in case a solar storm leaves the satellites temporarily unusable, we indicate here the main accesses to the city of Barcelona.

AVINGUDA MERIDIANA: This is the access from the North of the city. Connects with the motoway (autopista) C-33, and the C-33 connects with the A-P7, main motorway (autopista) that leads to the North of Catalonia and France. La Avinguda Meridiana takes you to Plaça de les Glòries, which connects with the Avinguda Diagonal, Aragó street and Gran Vía.

GRAN VIA: Crosses the city from South to North. In the South connects with the motorway C-31 (the C31 connects with the C-32). In the Norht with the motoway C-32. Gran Vía leads to Plaça Espanya, Plaça Universitat, Plaça Catalunya and Plaça de les Glòries

AVINGUDA DIAGONAL: Connects with roads and motorways to the South and East of Spain AP7, A-P2, A-2/N-II and N-340.

LES RONDES: These are fast ring roads with access to different places of the city. There are three.

  • Ronda de Dalt: Runs roughly north-south and lies west of the city on the mountainside. This is the fastest route to and from the airport and the autopista north to France.
  • Ronda del Litoral: Completes the ring around the city, following the coast.
  • Ronda del Mig: Runs diagonally across the city from south-east to north-west.

Hola Aldo:

Puedes reservar un parking en Barcelona con nosotros. Tienes dos opciones muy económicas para seguir con tu idea (te desaconsejamos aparcar el coche en espacios gratuitos de los que se habla a veces en algunos blogs). Por ejemplo:

Parking Viajeros, que cuesta 7€ el día

Parking Promoparc Cubics que cuesta 5€ el día y el precio va bajando a medida que se aumentan el número de días. Este parking no está en Barcelona, está en Santa Coloma de Gramenet, pero tiene una estación de metro cerca y llegas al pleno centro de Barcelona en media hora.

¡Buena estancia en Barcelona!

Hola Juan Luis:
La más cercana es la Barcelona Nord, pero para ir andando es un camino. Por eso igual es mejor bajar en Sants y coger el metro L3 hasta la estación de Drassanes y de ahí si que está cerca para ir andando.
¡Buen viajes!

En arrivant à Barcelone par l'AP-7 venant de platja d'aro, j'aimerais connaitre le nom de la station de métro la plus proche car nous laisserions la voiture au parking. Merci pour votre réponse

my name is Helena Gamerdinger and I am flying from Sweden to Barcelona and then on to Lloret de Mar with my friend on Saturday June 1st. We are arriving quite late in the evening, at 11.30 pm, and I am wondering what kinds of bus transfer are available to us to get to Lloret de Mar at that time? Can you please help me with info about which transfer companies are good and affordable, and how I might be able to book ahead of time for this perhaps. Thank you so much.

Your help is much appreciated.

Best regards,
